TISE is managed in a responsible and sustainable manner, supporting our transition to a low-carbon and sustainable economy
Our vision, mission and values articulate the ambition for our business and define our common beliefs. The Group’s values of being Responsible, Curious and Connected foster a culture of accountability, efficiency and innovation which underpins delivery of our strategy and promotes the Group’s success over the long-term. They help ensure that our business is managed in a responsible and sustainable manner, enabling it to adapt to meet the changing needs of our stakeholders during the transition to a low-carbon and sustainable economy.
Issuers choose TISE because the products are provided through an efficient and cost-effective service from a venue which is internationally recognised and operates to global standards. TISE attracts issuers from around the world, including companies operating across a spectrum of environmental, social and sustainable sectors, such as, education, healthcare, municipal infrastructure, social housing and renewable energy.
We engage with our stakeholders in an open and transparent manner, using feedback from our network to stay informed about industry developments and ensure that we retain our competitive edge. We work closely with our Listing Agents and Sponsors to deliver our market-leading listing service and have recently invested significantly in technology to help us deliver our services in a more efficient way.

Supporting Sustainable Finance
TISE Sustainable is our comprehensive and reputable sustainable finance segment which enables the flow of capital into investments that promote environmental, social or sustainable activities. Since its launch in July 2021, sustainable issuers, green bonds, sustainable bonds, sustainability-linked bonds and humanitarian catastrophe bonds have been admitted to TISE Sustainable.
In 2022, there were new admissions from brands such as Dutch telecommunications group VodafoneZiggo, the UK’s leading independent leasing, fleet management and vehicle outsourcing business Zenith, and renewable energy infrastructure investor Bluefield.
Whilst we continue to list securities which are not within the sustainable sector, we remain mindful of the need to appropriately manage and support issuers and investors with their transition to a low carbon and sustainable economy. Our new transition offering caterers for transition bonds and transition issuers within our sustainable finance segment, TISE Sustainable, further supporting initiatives to secure a just transition to net-zero.

Managing our Environmental Impact
As part of our commitment to deliver a business model which is sustainable over the longer term, the Group enrolled on ESI Monitor’s FutureTracker service at the beginning of 2023.
It is a recognised platform, providing a framework for us to measure, manage, minimise and benchmark the impact of our business operations on the environment. FutureTracker gives us the tools to work collaboratively with internal and external stakeholders to develop a pathway to operate our organisation in a more sustainable manner.
We are at the start of this process, with the first step being to establish an emissions benchmark for TISE, and will provide regular progress updates on our journey towards a more sustainable future.
Supporting Economic Growth
TISE provides opportunities for small and medium size enterprises (SMEs) to access the capital markets with a tailored offering which meets the needs of a growing business. With a proportionate and straightforward approach, and a total cost of listing of approximately one third of the cost of the traditional marketplaces, TISE is an ideal ‘incubator’ allowing business owners to scale up their companies sooner than had previously been possible. This brings broader societal benefits through the creation of jobs and new opportunities in the issuer's domestic markets.
In addition to supporting business growth and acquisitions, international retail and food service operator SandpiperCI uses its TISE listing to raise its profile and enable wider participation in the ownership of the business. With over 80 stores across the Channel Islands, Gibraltar and Isle of Man, SandpiperCI works with over 40 local suppliers helping to support small businesses and providing access to international retail brands on our high streets.

Partnering with our Communities
Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme helps us to support and engage with the communities in which we live and work.

All funds raised by our staff through CSR activities are matched by TISE.
