The public holding Chimimport is involved in the creation of the first of its kind in Bulgaria think tank for sustainable finance and energy - Green Finance & Energy Center. It was officially established on March 31 and it will work as a place for dialogue, public debate and discussing policies in the areas of sustainable financing and energy and will provide good practices in the field that will lead to concrete decisions.
One of the goals and Green Finance & Energy Center’s first initiative is raising awareness among businesses, upgrading the code of good corporate governance with aspects of environmental development and social responsibility, creating a stock exchange Green Index to encourage companies to introduce ESG practices as well as distinguish those who do it in the best way.
Green Finance & Energy Center was established on the initiative of the Bulgarian Stock Exchange (BSE) and the Bulgarian Independent Energy Exchange (IBEX). It is implemented in partnership with the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Energy, the Financial Supervision Commission and the Fund. It is attended by nearly 30 of the most authoritative personalities in our country and representatives of stakeholders on the topics of: business, government institutions, NGOs and industry organizations, academia and consultants.
By joining the Green Finance & Energy Center as a participant, the public holding Chimimport, which has always worked towards the implementation of innovations and the imposition of the highest professional criteria on the market, promotes the development of sustainable finance and energy and continues to be one of the factors for creating good practices and positive change.
