Malta Stock Exchange (MSE) CEO Simon Zammit has stressed the vital role that exchanges have in driving sustainability initiatives within their respective markets.

This came as on Thursday, the MSE joined other exchanges from all around the world to Ring the Bell for Climate, an inaugural sustainability initiative organised by the World Federation of Exchanges (WFE), the global industry group for exchanges and central counterparty clearing houses (CCPs). Over the coming weeks, exchanges will be coming together to discuss ways to address climate change and sustainability issues.

With the world facing a number issues related to the climate change crisis, exchanges, sitting at the heart of financial markets, are integral in encouraging sustainable development within the business landscape.

During the ceremony, Mr Zammit highlighted the “pivotal role” that exchanges worldwide play in “addressing and fostering” sustainable activities.

Aside from Mr Zammit, the event was also attended by members of MSE’s Executive Team Alfred Sammut and Charmaine Baldacchino, together with members of the MSE Green Team, who have recently been entrusted with the task of drafting and proposing a sustainability policy for the exchange. Additionally, the MSE Green Team is also responsible for proposing a number of sustainable initiatives that the exchange can implement in its operations.

Commenting on the Ring the Bell for Climate initiative, WFE CEO Nandini Sukumar said: “By ringing the bell, exchanges acknowledge their central role in addressing the climate crisis and advancing sustainability efforts.”

“As climate change continues to be a pressing global issue, the involvement of financial markets, and the exchanges at their heart, is crucial in driving the transition to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly economy. With our dedication to these efforts, we will be able to secure a brighter future and a more sustainable world for generations to come,” she added.

She highlighted that initiatives like Ring the Bell for Climate can serve as a “catalyst for further collaboration and action” within the financial industry to tackle climate challenges and “contribute to a greener future”.
