Green focus for International Stock Exchange


The International Stock Exchange has launched a new initiative to give more visibility to investments making a positive impact on the environment.

TISEGREEN is open to all types of green investments, including bonds, funds and trading companies, from any jurisdiction.

Applications will be verified by a third party to make sure the investment meet internationally recognised standards of green finance. 

Successful applicants will be added to the TISEGREEN section of TISE’s website and receive logos to promote their admission.

Fiona Le Poidevin, CEO of the International Stock Exchange Group (TISEG), explained: “The focus on environmental sustainability in recent years has led to an established and growing sector of green finance. Indeed, there is an increasing pool of investors who are mandated either to only invest, or to invest a certain proportion of their assets, into investments which, alongside traditional financial return, provide positive environmental benefits.

“TISEGREEN has been established to enable those seeking funding for environmentally beneficial initiatives to highlight their green credentials while, at the same time, providing easier access for investors who are looking to allocate to those investments which have been verified as meeting globally recognised standards in green finance.”
