“QSE joins elite club of bourses with ESG data digitalisation” – Gulf Times – December 23, 2018

On December 23, 2018 Gulf Times reported that “(t)he Qatar Stock Exchange (QSE) has launched its online Sustainability and Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) platform.

The online ESG platform allows all listed companies to login, upload their sustainability reports and submit their sustainability data on the QSE’s 34 ESG indicators. Investors can have real-time access to publicly reported essential sustainability data, information and reports organised by each issuer; all from a single source.

This platform is designed to accelerate the objectives of the QSE Guidance on ESG reporting launched in December 2016 to support listed companies report on key ESG indicators.

The initiative, which comes with the support of the Qatar Financial Markets Authority, is in line with the sustainability pillars of the Qatar National Vision 2030. It is also part of the exchange’s efforts to uphold its voluntary commitment to the Sustainable Stock Exchanges initiative (SSE).”
