    Supporting Sustainable Growth

    Tomorrow's economy depends on modernizing markets today 

    Building a trusted ecosystem

    Several factors have converged to kindle growth and interest in sustainable investments, from carbon removal technologies and ESG initiatives to global climate goals and voluntary carbon markets. We’re committed to supporting the burgeoning sustainable investments ecosystem by delivering standardization, access and efficiency. 

    Our Vision

    The world is at a pivotal point in its fight against climate change and we’re pushing for progress on a number of fronts. Nasdaq is in a unique position linking markets, investors, corporations and financial market infrastructures (FMIs).

    Markets

    Carbon credits are a fast-growing asset class but markets themselves are experiencing associated growing pains. We understand the importance of not only market efficiency, but trust, transparency and integrity: pillars that underpin our operations and which we’re bringing to carbon markets for the benefit of all stakeholders.

    Standards

    Building on industry standards will be crucial to cementing sustainable investments as appealing, accessible assets. Not only does standardization help drive market efficiency but it also helps climate removal projects access a deeper global pool of capital of financing.

    Leadership

    The world needs leaders to pave the way forward. We’re taking action on a number of fronts to demonstrate climate leadership by example, ideally lifting the industry and helping others bring attention to their sustainable investments or green business models.
