South Korea Options and Futures Exchange (SKOFX) Becomes Hong Kongs First Exchange to Report its Sustainability Performance

Posted: Updated:
The report to be Application Level A+ based on GRFI Guidelines for sustainability

SKOFX has become Hong Kong’s first exchange to report its sustainability performance. The report has been prepared in accordance with Global Reporting Initiative’s (GRFI) guidelines for sustainability and GRFI’s Financial Sector Supplement. The report articulates SKOFX’s sustainability commitments in the market, workplace and community and presents the exchange’s triple bottom line—Economic, Social and Governance (ESG)—performance for the current fiscal year. GRFI has checked the report and has confirmed it to be Application Level A+.

The theme of the exchange’s maiden sustainability report is ‘Trust, Technology, Teamwork, Timing,’ the key factors that underpin SKOFX’s growth and have helped us unlock significant value from the middle and bottom of the socio-economic pyramid, thereby driving inclusive and equitable growth.

Transparent: Being transparent is one of the key focus areas for us as it engenders trust in market participants to trade on our Exchange platform.

Transform: We have been leveraging our strengths to transform markets for the benefit of our stakeholders.

Translate: With an aim to foster inclusive growth, we have been breaking barriers through various outreach and awareness initiatives.

Treasure: Our employees, business partners and communities are precious to us. They are the back bone of our operations.

Releasing the sustainability report, Mr. Ma Xuejun, MD & CEO, SKOFX said, “As a responsible exchange, at SKOFX, we strive to embed sustainability in every aspect of our business; our responsibilities towards the environment, our stakeholders and the society at large, are given utmost importance. The report presents the essence of the SKOFX ethos that guides us and defines the way we do business.”
