The Global PSSL for UN Pathways welcomes the Botswana Stock Exchange as reviewer
Global Principles for Sustainable Securities Lending (Global PSSL) is pleased to welcome executive experts from the Botswana Stock Exchange as peer reviewers on the Global PSSL strategic research bridge project to support United Nations Pathways. The objective of the project is to clarify how the nine Global PSSL principles sit within the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and other dedicated UN sustainable finance initiatives.
This project is governed and run by Global PSSL and facilitated by our Research Opportunities for Sustainable Economy (ROSE) Centre. It benefits from external and independent peer review from UN senior experts. It received financial assistance from the Global PSSL core participants, in addition to significant funding from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), part of UK Research and Innovation, through the Sustainable Finance – Law – Stakeholders (SFLS) Network at Exeter Law School.
The ESRC grant request was designed based on earlier engagement with stakeholders shaping values-based banking, green bonds and sustainable project finance as well as continuous contact, research and discussions with staff from the World Bank.
About Global PSSL
The Global Principles for Sustainable Securities Lending (Global PPSL) is the fundamental global mechanism for aligning securities lending with sustainable finance. This voluntary initiative has been developed through years of research based engagement between Dr Radek Stech, representing the SFLS Network at Exeter Law School, prominent beneficial owners and several agent lenders and other stakeholders committed to positive change.
In order to preserve its impartiality, the Global PSSL framework is based within its own independent community interest company, led by Dr Stech.
