Singapore Exchange

BOND issuers in the Asia-Pacific can opt to showcase their green, social and sustainability (GSS) bonds to global investors, under a partnership between the Singapore Exchange (SGX) and Nasdaq.

This will make available standardised environmental, social and governance (ESG) data covering areas such as pre-issuance frameworks and certifications as well as post-issuance allocation and impact.

The partnership is meant to make GSS bonds in the region more accessible and transparent, SGX said.

Global issuers can voluntarily publish key information and data on GSS bonds on Nasdaq's sustainable bond network. The addition of SGX data to this platform expands the network to 650 issuers and about 6,500 bonds.
