The ongoing 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (“COP26”) has once again set sustainability and sustainable finance at the fore of global conversations, as world leaders have collectively resolved to tackle climate change.

It has therefore become imperative to deepen the sustainable finance eco-system to foster more sustainable investments for the achievement of these lofty aims. As a sustainability-focused financial market infrastructure (FMI) group, FMDQ Holdings PLC’s (“FMDQ Group” or “FMDQ”) strong commitment to its five (5) Sustainability Pillars – Business, Markets, People, Community and Environment, and recognition of the need for Nigeria to continuously stay at the forefront of the global sustainable finance drive, have seen the Group take the lead in championing sustainable finance initiatives in the Nigerian financial markets.
