Committed to Environmental Sustainability

We were early investors in the development of global emissions markets and we continue to support market-based solutions to environmental challenges. The establishment of a transparent, market-based pricing helps companies make decisions on how to allocate resources and invest in new technologies and innovative solutions. ICE’s products provide open markets, price discovery and transparency, as well as an effective means to comply with the requirements of various government programs.

Green REIT

NYSE lists the only publicly traded "green" REIT, Hannon Armstrong (NYSE: HASI). They are focused on sustainable infrastructure markets that reduce climate changing greenhouse gas emissions as well as mitigating the impact of climate change.

Sustainable Commodity Markets

We are working with others in the commodity markets community to help increase sustainability including through our membership in the Global Coffee Platform and as members of a World Federation of Exchanges working group that is looking into the development of sustainability standards for commodity markets.
