Sustainability Statement




Our Business

Built on a culture of responsiveness and innovation, TISE is a regulated market specialising in listing bond issuances aimed at professional investors.

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.

Further information about the Group’s governance arrangements is available on the Investor Relations page.


Our Environment

We are committed to being part of the sustainable capital markets ecosystem, both in terms of how we manage our business responsibly and facilitate capital flows into environmental, social and sustainable initiatives.

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, ESG-rated companies, green bonds, sustainable bonds, sustainability-linked bonds and humanitarian catastrophe bonds have been admitted to TISE Sustainable.

In 2023, there were new admissions from Latin American telecoms brand, Liberty Costa Rica, and the global leader in the production of natural soda ash, WE Soda, which became the first issuer to be admitted to the segment by virtue of holding an ESG rating.

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 has taken a number of steps to move forward with our sustainability agenda.

We have agreed targets and commitments for the Group and introduced new policies to help improve our environmental performance. Our target is to be Net Zero on Scope 1 and 2 (operational) emissions by 2050. We have also committed to take practical steps to minimise our Scope 3 (value chain) emissions, while offsetting any remaining Scope 3 emissions.

Using ESI Monitor’s FutureTracker service, we collated initial emissions data from our business operations and calculated our first emissions footprint. Our total reported emissions footprint for 2022 was 34.80 tCO2e or 0.82 tCO2e per FTE. The majority of these emissions were reported under Scope 3, which have been offset via a gold standard offset project.

We will continue working to reduce emissions from our business operations and provide reporting on the progress we are making against our targets and commitments.

Our Community

As the operator of an international exchange and an active participant in the global capital markets, we connect and engage with a broad range of external stakeholders, both large and small.

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.

Providing Employment & Development Opportunities

Our success is founded in the quality of our staff. TISE offers unique career opportunities and employs staff with a diverse range of skills and experience. Our career development programme is designed to attract and develop talent and we make a significant investment in staff training and professional development to help our staff progress in their chosen careers. 

We are an equal opportunities employer and are committed to ensuring that all staff are treated fairly and with respect. Our employment policies follow best practice and, in so doing, ensure that staff are supported and protected in all aspects of their employment.

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. Our staff choose a local community project or not-for-profit organisation to partner with each year and provide support through both fundraising and employee volunteering days. All funds raised by our staff through CSR activities are matched by TISE.

In 2023 we raised more than £18,000 for the Priaulx Premature Baby Foundation, a charity which supports families from the Channel Islands with premature babies and sick children. We also made smaller donations to charities providing similar services in Dublin, Jersey and London.

To mark our 25th anniversary in 2023 and in addition to our charity fundraising, staff undertook 25 separate activities to support our local communities. This included participating in the Sure Guernsey Marathon, the Saffery Rotary Walk, and the Canaccord Genuity Inter-Firm Relay, as well as a tree planting scheme organised through Jersey Finance. In addition, the Group provided corporate sponsorship for the Guernsey Women’s football team, Guernsey netballer McKenzie Rich, the Island Games sailing competition, world championship sailor Andrew Bridgman, and Vauvert Primary School’s Dragons’ Den competition.
