Deutsche Börse: a stock exchange with a sustainability mission - BNP Paribas CIB
 
Friday 11 October 2019

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.


At a time of deep transformation in society, Deutsche Börse is taking a lead role in the ongoing debate as to what sustainable, fair and stable capital markets should look like in the future, says Head of Group Sustainability Kristina Jeromin.

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  [1] – 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.

Why are environmental, social and governance (ESG) profiles key for companies' futures? Who is involved in the Green and Sustainable Finance Cluster, and what do they focus on? And how important is the EU action plan on sustainable finance, especially for Germany? Find out in the video.
