Our sustainability strategy includes all environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues that affect our business, operations and internal and external stakeholders. Our global teams work together to create an impact in the marketplaces and communities where we live and work. We also advocate for ESG practices in our markets.
Exchanges serve an important role in encouraging practical and achievable environmental, social and governance principles. Nasdaq is honored as the only stock exchange in the Dow Jones North America Sustainability Index (DJSI). We are fully committed to continuing our ESG efforts, and we are excited to lead the shift towards more sustainable and inclusive capital markets.
