Sustainability

Situated at the heart of South Africa’s capital markets, the JSE is well-positioned to drive long-term sustainable economic growth, stability and resilience in our economy.

We are committed to operating at the highest regulatory standards, adopting sustainable business practices and advocating sustainability reporting by JSE-listed companies. We believe this will build trust and contribute to long-term value for our stakeholders.

Stock exchanges can contribute to the aims of sustainable development behaviour by advising on a systematic approach to environmental, social and governance (ESG) in corporate reporting, promoting global corporate governance codes and standards and offering products and services that support responsible investing.
