The Future of Sustainable Data Alliance (FoSDA) and CDP will co-host the ‘Steering the role of ESG data providers’ panel discussion as part of the 27th Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC (COP27), taking place on 9 November from 10:30 – 11:30 (EET) at the We Mean Business Pavilion located in the Blue Zone area.
ESG data and scoring providers play an essential role in financial decision-making and should ideally ensure that the data collected and provided through their services is aligned with science-based methodologies. Definitions are critical to effectively allow for capital allocations to contribute to a sustainable financial system.
However, a fragmented landscape, with the proliferation of different data gathering, rating, and scoring methodologies, is currently creating a lack of consensus and clear guidance for businesses to measure ESG risks, opportunities, and impacts and take action towards an alignment of the financial sector and the real economy towards the global net zero objective.
FoSDA & CDP panel will discuss the critical role ESG data and scoring providers play in decision-making to advance action towards the Paris Agreement goals. The event will focus on the need for solid and reliable data to provide guidance and enhance capital deployment to build a sustainable financial system.
FoSDA will also be launching its flagship review of ESG Data Gaps and Holes.
