NEW YORK -- September 25, 2013

NYSE Euronext today announced that it has been named to the CDP S&P 500
Climate Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI) for the fourth year in a row, and
has also been named to the CDP S&P 500 Climate Performance Leadership Index
(CPLI) for the second year in a row. In addition, the company continues to be
the only global exchange operator to be named to these indices.

“As a global exchange group home to the world’s leading companies, we
recognize that a sustainably-managed, natural environment is vitally important
to our business, our employees, our clients, and the global community at
large,” said Jeffrey Pellet, Senior Vice President of Global Real Estate and
Corporate Services at NYSE Euronext. “We are honored by this recognition from
CDP and believe it further validates our efforts and commitment to minimize
the environmental impacts of our activities and conducting our business in a
manner that is consistent with our commitment to corporate responsibility and
sustainability.”

In the 2013 CDP S&P 500 Climate Change Report, NYSE Euronext received a score
of 99 out of 100 on the CDLI, making it the second highest ranked company in
the Financial sector category. In addition, for the second year in a row, NYSE
Euronext received a score of “A,” which is the highest score possible on the
CPLI. NYSE Euronext’s actions to address climate change are featured in a
special section in this year’s report, which analyzes responses from S&P 500
companies to the CDP climate change questionnaire.

This distinction further demonstrates NYSE Euronext’s leadership in and
commitment to sustainability. The company recently marked its third
consecutive year as the only global carbon-neutral exchange group operator and
also joined the United Nations’ Sustainable Stock Exchanges (SSE) Initiative,
which aims to explore how exchanges can work together with investors,
regulators, and companies to enhance corporate transparency on Environmental,
Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) issues and encourage responsible
long-term approaches to investment.
