Rwanda’s Stock Exchange is one of the global bourses that has welcomed the move to establish a Sustainable Stock Exchanges (SSE) Initiative, which was launched in New York on September 24, 2015.
The SSE initiative is a peer-to-peer learning platform which will explore how exchanges can encourage sustainable investment and enhance corporate transparency, and ultimately performance, on environmental, social and corporate governance issues.
Pierre Célestin Rwabukumba, the Chief Executive Officer of Rwanda Stock Exchange said that “Rwanda’s participation in the SSE serves to confirm Rwanda’s commitment that the market will not be left behind in all efforts geared to building our economies and capital market in a responsible and rational manner.
“What we do today will shape our future; if we mean survival then we must plan sustainably and collectively, hopefully with no excuses from anyone.”Rwabukumba said.
