The NSE aims to minimize the impact of its activities on the environment. In pursuit of this goal, it has gone beyond compliance with the measures required of it by law and by its external agreements.

The NSE considers it important to increase efficiency and reduce waste, to recycle where possible and to minimize natural resource use. The Exchange is continually improving its environmental management practices and measures, educating employees to adopt environmentally responsible behavior an​d promoting these same practices in its supply chain and marketplace.

NSE recycles
At the NSE, we are working towards reducing waste creation first, then looking for ways to reuse or recycle the waste material. This necessitated the setting up of a Workplace Recycling Initiative with the installation of recycling bins across our offices. This initiative is implemented in partnership with the Lagos State Waste Management Authority (LAWAMA) and we make every effort to ensure safe and reliable disposal of our waste.
