“Sustainability” has turned into one of the core values in the financial industry worldwide, becoming more important than ever before. Companies, investors, and other stakeholders consider environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria as a crucial set of standards for their decision-making process.
Recognizing the importance of sustainability, the Korea Exchange (KRX) strives to have ESG investing take root in Korea. With a strong sense of responsibility, KRX takes the lead in creating an environment for the Korean financial market to achieve healthy growth over the long term.
Sharing the sustainability initiative with international organizations and networks, such as the Sustainable Stock Exchanges(SSE), the Principles of Responsible Investment(PRI), the Global Reporting Initiatives(GRI) and the Asian Corporate Governance Association(ACGA), KRX actively supports ESG investing. At the same time, KRX is beefing up its own corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities.
