Statement in support of the SSE

Being a responsible corporate citizen

Intercontinental Exchange (NYSE: ICE) and its subsidiary, the New York Stock Exchange, support the efforts of publicly traded companies to be long-term responsible corporate citizens and stewards of stockholder resources.  It may be beneficial to share with stockholders and other stakeholders information on a company’s corporate responsibility efforts by disclosing relevant environmental, social and governance (ESG) indicators tied to a company’s business strategy.

Companies earn the trust of stockholders by delivering financial returns, coupled with responsible stewardship of resources.  As a member of the Sustainable Stock Exchange (SSE) Initiative, ICE supports the efforts of the SSE and of NYSE-listed companies to provide ongoing communications and information regarding the quality and quantity of disclosures relating to relevant ESG matters.  These efforts may contribute to transparency for all stakeholders.
