EGX... A Pioneer In Sustainability Efforts

The Egyptian Exchange (EGX) is a great believer of sustainable development to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. EGX would endorse any sustainable business practices that would adopt more environmentally friendly and energy efficient solutions, to ensure prosperity for future generations.

EGX was one of four pioneer exchanges that joined the United Nations' Sustainable Stock Exchanges initiative (SSE) in 2009. The aim of the initiative, founded by the UN Secretary-General is to increase exchange-listed companies' transparency and commitment to environmental, social and corporate governance issues.

Additionally, EGX launched its S&P EGX ESG index in March 2010; the first and only ESG index in the Middle East and North Africa Region designed to track the performance of companies listed on EGX that demonstrate leadership in environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) issues.

EGX is also an active member of the Sustainability Working Group (SWG) of the World Federation of Exchanges that was established in March 2014, as it become Vice Chairman of SWG in May 2016 for a term of two years.

From another perspective, EGX will facilitate the listing process for companies working in the eco-industries field i.e. renewable energy, waste recycling, transportation etc. EGX provides a diverse platform to finance eco-industries through IPOs, bonds, Sukuk, and infrastructure funds.
