DiNapoli Applauds NYSE Euronext for Joining the United Nations' Sustainable Stock Exchanges Initiative

New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli today commended NYSE Euronext, the parent company of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), for joining the United Nations Sustainable Stock Exchanges Initiative. NYSE Euronext made the announcement today at an event held at the NYSE with DiNapoli, NYSE Euronext CEO Duncan L. Niederauer and United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

“With today’s announcement, the NYSE Euronext has solidified its reputation as a global leader in sustainability and corporate responsibility,” DiNapoli said. “My office has been engaged with the company on this topic for several months and we support the effort to enhance shareholder value by improving corporate transparency on environmental, social and governance issues. This is a milestone for New York, NYSE Euronext and investors seeking companies that are taking long-term approaches to growth.”

The United Nations Sustainable Stock Exchanges Initiative is a collaborative effort among investors, regulators and companies to enhance corporate transparency, and ultimately performance, on environmental, social and corporate governance issues and to encourage sustainable investment.
