5 years of LGX

From pioneering to leading sustainable finance

The Luxembourg Stock Exchange is happy to invite you to our online event to celebrate the 5th anniversary of LGX on 29 September 2021, from 17:00 - 18:00 CET.

In September 2016, we created the Luxembourg Green Exchange (LGX), the first platform exclusively dedicated to sustainable securities, as a contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Agreement.

5 years and multiple milestones later, LGX remains the world’s leading platform for sustainable finance.

Join us on the day to discover the highlights of these past 5 years, get expert insights into the current trends and challenges that shape sustainable finance and learn how we can accelerate the transition to a low-carbon and more inclusive economy.

Mobilising capital towards global sustainability goals through data
As companies and investors strive to integrate ESG aspects into their decision-making and link their sustainability strategy to their business performance, data is at the heart of the challenge and is shaping the future of sustainable finance and business success.

Protecting the environment in a profitable way
Is it possible to combat climate change without trading off economic development, mobility and comfort? Achieve clean growth by reconciling the environment and the economy? The answer is not 1 but 1,000 solutions.
