Gender Equality – G20 Corporate Boards Sustainable Stock Exchanges SSE Benchmark Data!

Sustainable Stock Exchanges (SSE) can decorate company transparency and, in the end, overall performance on ESG like environmental, social, and company governance troubles and inspire sustainable investment. We all want to do more in society. I believe. The Brave Boardrooms are Diverse! But what about the International Trail Blazing.


Today! I will share Benchmark Data of the largest 100 Companies on 22 International Stock Exchanges.

My FRIENDS, AT Sustainable Stock Exchanges, released the benchmark Data in 2021! 

Guess Who takes the Crown? No, is it not the US Capital Markets?

Before we get in the data, Gender Equality is one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals agreed to by UN member States. Stock exchanges and other capital market stakeholders play an important role in promoting gender equality.

First, I want my Board Chair and CEO subscribers to understand the Background, History, and makeup of Global Capital Markets – Sustainable Stock Exchanges.

What Is a Sustainable Stock Exchange?

Sustainable Stock Exchanges

The Sustainable Stock Exchanges (SSE) initiative is a peer-to-peer learning platform for exploring how exchanges, in collaboration with investors, regulators, and companies, corporate transparency, ultimately performance and encourage sustainable investment. The SSE is Organized by the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), the UN Global Compact, the UN Environment Program Finance Initiative (UNEP FI), and the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).

106 Exchanges in 101 Countries Internationally, with 53,399 listed Public companies. With a Market Cap of $88,343,273, That’s Trillions!

What Qualifies a Sustainable Stock Exchange?

Gender Equality On Corporate Boards Report by SSE

Data analysis of 2,200 issuers on 22 Stock Exchanges in G20 Countries.

I mentioned before and Gender equality is one of the seventeen United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Stock exchanges can play an important role in promoting gender equality in their markets. This policy brief analyzes gender equality on the boards of the top 100 issuers by market capitalization on each of the G20’s major stock exchanges. The data provides exchanges with gender equality in the top positions in companies listed on their markets. This data can serve as a benchmark for exchanges to promote gender equality in their markets.

So What are the major Findings – Board Chairs Need To Be Mindful?
