The Luxembourg Stock Exchange (LuxSE) has won the "Exchange of the Year" prize at Environmental Finance's Bonds Awards for the fourth consecutive year.

Following the release of Environmental Finance’s Bonds Awards 2020 winners, the LuxSE announced today that it has been named "Exchange of the Year" for the fourth year in a row. 

Since launching the Luxembourg Green Exchange (LGX) in September 2016, the world’s first and still unique platform dedicated solely to sustainable securities, LuxSE has continued to pave the way towards a more sustainable economy. This has been recognised year on year since 2017 during Environmental Finance’s Bond Awards. The annual Bond Awards celebrate financial institutions and issuers for their proactive behaviour in furthering the sustainable finance agenda through their contributions to the green bond market.

Julie Becker, Deputy CEO of LuxSE and Founder of LGX, commented: “Each year, we set higher goals for the contribution we want to make to sustainable finance, while continuing to provide a leading platform for green, social and sustainability securities in close partnership with our bond issuers, arrangers and advisors. It is a great honour to have this common work recognised for a fourth consecutive year by Environmental Finance".

Along with the launch of the LuxSE Guide to ESG Reporting, the past twelve months have seen representatives from LuxSE take up the role of sustainability lecturers as the first phase of LGX Academy was launched with lectures held in Stockholm and Luxembourg. With solid foundations rooted in Luxembourg for the future of sustainable finance, 2020 is set to be yet another busy year for the world’s leading platform for sustainable finance.

Judges from the Bond Awards expert panel also noted that: "Most of the bonds looked at [for Bond Awards] were listed on the Luxembourg Stock Exchange, which is also supportive of broader sustainable finance initiatives".
