The Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) has announced that it has joined the United Nation's Sustainable Stock Exchanges (SSE) initiative.

The SSE Initiative was launched in 2009 by the UN-supported Principles for Responsible Investment, the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative, and the UN Global Compact. The SSE Initiative seeks to explore how stock exchanges can work together with investors, regulators and companies on environmental, social and corporate governance issues, and encourage responsible long-term approaches to investment. Member exchanges voluntarily commit to promoting these principles.

Other exchanges that have joined the SSE Initiative include BM&FBOVESPA (Brazil), the Bombay Stock Exchange, Borsa Istanbul Stock Exchange, Egyptian Exchange, Johannesburg Stock Exchange, NASDAQ OMX and New York Stock Exchange Euronext.
