The Sustainability Handbook of SIX Swiss Exchange
A new standalone guide from SIX Swiss Exchange will help companies with their sustainability requirements.
Sustainability is a megatrend, and one that issuers cannot afford to ignore, especially as legislators, regulators and investors are becoming increasingly proactive in this area.
In the case of regulation, new reporting requirements demand that companies disclose their sustainability activities and figures. However, not all of these regulatory guidelines are standardised, and this lack of harmonisation is creating challenges for issuers and investors.
Better standardisation around sustainability reporting is something which SIX Swiss Exchange has been actively pursuing.
Our Sustainability Handbook contains a selection of specialist articles and guidance that are relevant to you as a listed company. These have been written by several sustainability experts. The thematic focus of the articles was chosen to answer questions that have emerged from numerous conversations with company representatives.
Why Is the Investor Relations Handbook Important for You?
Strategic Corporate Communication
Investor Relations is a field of action in strategic corporate communication. It describes the management by a stock corporation of its relations with investors.
The primary goal of Investor Relations is to optimize the company’s market valuation or its equity financing.
Maintaining close relations with institutional investors also helps.
A good Investor Relations and communication program starts with a good analysis. What strengths and weaknesses does the company have from an investor’s perspective?
Investor Relations gains strategic relevance in exceptional situations, such as transactions (M&A), the emergence of shareholder activists, and in crises.
Definition and Targets
The actual and target status of the Investor Relations objectives is identified and the target groups, perception, instruments and communication principles are defined in the Investor Relations strategy.
