ADX publishes its first sustainability report

The Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange has launched its first sustainability report.

The exchange says the report is the first across the region to be presented in such a comprehensive format and is aligned with ADX’s growth strategy which aims to increase the adoption of sustainable financing in the Emirate and drive capital towards investments that have positive ESG impacts.

The report illustrates ADX’s commitment to help align the UAE’s financial system with global best practice and advance the implementation locally of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It  comes a few months after ADX issued a set of ESG disclosure guidelines to encourage its listed companies to incorporate ESG considerations into their business activities, decision-making and reporting.
