How is the German stock exchange involved in the "future-proofing" of capital markets? How does it set the example on sustainability? Kristina Jeromin explains.
The company takes sustainability very seriously: based on a group-wide sustainability strategy, it has developed a broad portfolio of sustainable products and services. To set the example, earlier this year it integrated a new ESG dimension into its €750 million credit facility in the form of a positive incentive loan  – a loan whose interest rate is linked to selected sustainability key performance indicators (KPI) – with BNP Paribas as sustainability coordinator. Deutsche Börse was also instrumental in the launching of the Green and Sustainable Finance Cluster Germany, which aims to build up a national sustainable finance profile.
