Sustainability has been a key topic to ABN AMRO Clearing for many years. As part of its efforts to foster the sustainability debate in the derivatives industry, ABN AMRO Clearing is driving the debate at various platforms and industry associations.

The FIA published its first policy paper on sustainability in the derivatives industry, highlighting the role that derivatives markets can play in the transition to a more sustainable economy. The paper emphasizes recent innovations, such as carbon trading platforms, that help market participants in discovering prices for commodities that are vital to addressing climate change concerns. In addition, exchanges, working in partnership with clearing members and other market participants, are quickly identifying new products that assist in sustainability efforts.

The policy paper also highlights the importance of industry-developed best practices and standards and the need for further harmonization of the fragmented global regulatory environment. It is crucial for the public and private sectors to work together to ensure laws and regulations avoid unnecessary conflicts but rather incentivize market-driven solutions.
