In March 2017, Nasdaq’s Nordic and Baltic Exchanges issued a framework to support their listed companies to meet ESG disclosure requirements. The guidance has a strong reference to GRI’s sustainability reporting framework, and it reflects the recommendations of the UN Sustainable Stock Exchanges Initiative (SSE), in which GRI is also an active contributor.
The Nordic and Baltic Exchanges in Stockholm, Helsinki, Copenhagen, Iceland, Tallinn, Riga and Vilnius issued a voluntary ESG Reporting Guide to support their companies address critical environmental, social and governance (ESG) related matters.
Many of the companies listed on the Nordic and Baltic exchanges are already eager advocates of sustainability reporting – unsurprisingly, all seven exchanges are part of the UN Sustainable Stock Exchanges (SSE) initiative. GRI has also been actively contributing to the SSE Global and Regional Dialogues, and engages with many exchanges directly to support them develop their own guidance.
