As a technology-based services and infrastructure company, ASX is not materially exposed to direct climate change risks.
We are a diverse, customer-orientated organisation offering a range of activities that include the issuance, trading, clearing and settlement of equity, debt, futures and other derivative instruments, as well as the provision of technical and data services.
ASX’s equity market has over 2,200 listed companies that participate in a wide-range of activities throughout Australia and across the world. The aggregate mix of activities undertaken by listed companies is continually changing as economic forces influence a company’s ability to attract capital and the preparedness of investors to take on risk and outlay funds.
Like other companies, ASX is exposed to the risk of changes in regulatory pricing related to climate change. For example, increases in electricity costs. However, our view is that these risks are not material to ASX.
