UN lauds Egypt Bourse’s Efforts in Sustainable Development Field

The United Nations’ Sustainable Stock Exchanges initiative (UN SSE) hailed efforts being exerted by Egypt’s stock market in the field of sustainable development in the Middle East and North Africa.

In a statement on Sunday, the Egyptian Exchange (EGX) said the panel which was formed as part of the UN initiative on the sustainability of bourses published effective communication models with the parties to the market for 11 stock exchanges topped by the EGX.

The EGX was chosen as a model to effectively communicate with market parties in February.

The UN SSE initiative, founded in 2009, is co-organized by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), United Nations Environment Program Finance Initiative (UNEP FI), United Nations Global Compact and UN-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).
