Climate Bonds Initiative (CBI) has recognised the Exchange’s efforts in promoting sustainable finance. The Luxembourg Stock Exchange (LuxSE), with its sustainability-focused Luxembourg Green Exchange (LGX), won in the Green Bond Listing Venue category.
The Green Bond Pioneer Awards (GBPA) are the premier annual recognition of achievement by organisations, financial institutions, governments and individuals who have demonstrated leadership through pioneering initiatives and green issuance, and have provided positive examples of climate-resilient and low-carbon investments. The CBI, who grants the awards, is an investor-focused not-for-profit, promoting large-scale investment in the low-carbon economy. The awards’ jury is composed of a buy-side advisory committee.
“To reach the vital goal of the first trillion in annual global green finance will need an increased focus on capital flows to emerging economies into the 2020s. The recipients of the 2019 Awards are at the forefront of this climate finance challenge. We thank these pioneers for demonstrating to the world that green finance is the tool to get us there,” commented Sean Kidney, CEO of CBI.
Two and a half years after its launch, the Luxembourg Green Exchange is still the only dedicated platform for sustainable investment products.
The Luxembourg Green Exchange, a platform dedicated exclusively to green, social and sustainable securities, was launched in September 2016.
