Sustainability

B3’s sustainability mission is “to promote sustainability and private social investment aligned with strategy, contributing to the institutional strengthening of B3”.

The Company is always looking to implement best practices in internal governance and to take up public positions related to this subject. It was the world’s first exchange to sign up to the UN Global Compact, in 2004 and in 2010 it became the first exchange in any emerging-market country to commit officially to the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), another UN initiative led by global institutional investors. Regarding Stock Exchanges initiatives, B3 was a founding signatory of the UN’s Sustainable Stock Exchanges (SSE) initiative in 2012, it became a member of the Sustainability Working Group set up by the World Federation of Exchanges (WFE) in 2014 and, since 2016, it is vice-chair of the initiative.

B3 has sought to identify and, where possible, to mitigate the negative externalities of our activity, harmonizing these actions with the present end of generating value for our shareholders.

As B3 believes that corporate sustainability offers a competitive edge, the work on inserting and maintaining it in the Company never ends. It is an aspect of all our decision-making processes, of how the Company is managed, of the products that are offered and of the services that are provided.

In line with this strong commitment, B3’s Board of Directors approved in 2013, the Sustainability Policy, which is aligned with its strategic principles and aims to formalize and orient guidelines for action on the theme. The Policy is structured in four pillars - Market, Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance.
