Issuers who will be listed on this platform are expected to meet a minimum set of ESG standards. Also, they have to comply with the specific criteria by NSE IFSC for the sustainability products which they wish to list.

The platform is expecting a range of corporate bodies, with large corporates, small, and medium enterprises, startups, nonprofits and social impact organisations, and government and quasi-government organisations for leveraging and attracting capital for the achievement of their climate and ESG goals.

The sustainability platform will utilise Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) or Blockchain ensuring speed, traceability, integrity, and tracking of transactions.
