Commenting on the awards, Mr. Bola Adeeko, Head, Shared Services Division, NSE, stated that, “we are most honoured to receive both awards. This achievement is a testament to the efficiency of our service offering and commitment to excellence.

These awards serve as recognition for the assiduous efforts of our employees to achieve our aspiration to provide investors and businesses with a reliable, efficient and adaptable exchange hub in Africa, to save and to access capital”.

Foremost amongst the CSR initiatives The Exchange was lauded for was the launch of the Sustainability Disclosure Guidelines, which articulates the approach to integrating sustainability into an organisation’s activities alongside indicators that should be considered when providing annual disclosure on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues.
