New Sustainability Report Released
NASDAQ OMX has published its 2012 Corporate Sustainability report, the first-ever to conform to the strict disclosure standards of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). This represents a watershed moment for the sustainability project at NASDAQ OMX.
“NASDAQ OMX has always been a believer in the virtues of sustainability,” NASDAQ OMX CEO Bob Greifeld wrote in his introduction to the report. “We were practicing corporate sustainability – in many different places and in many different ways – long before the term became so prevalent and fashionable. Efficiency and transparency formed the foundation of our brand 40 years ago, and they still drive our decision-making every day.”
NASDAQ OMX, working through the Sustainable Stock Exchanges Initiative, co-authored and signed a landmark agreement with four other stock exchanges at the UN Rio+20 Summit to “promote long-term sustainable investment” and improve ESG disclosure and performance. Since then, the company has joined the United Nations Global Compact and continued to work with partners, clients, and listed companies on their sustainability needs.
