Mapping data flows between the real and financial economy

FoSDA aims to be the  voice of the sustainability data and analytics ecosystem, bringing deep expertise, thought leadership and multi-stakeholder engagements. 2023 has already seen huge transformation, with the development of  a new working group focused on policy and regulation, and the implementation of a new governance structure.

In 2022, FoSDA released thought-leading reports on Sovereign and Corporate ESG Gaps & Holes at COP27 and biodiversity and natural capital datasets at COP15; launched the ESG & Sustainable Finance Data Skills Portal with the World Economic Forum; updated our Taxomania! infographic, engaged with global policy-makers and standard-setters; and convened the sustainable data ecosystem at global events.

In 2023, FoSDA’s ambitions are high, mirroring the urgency and pace of sustainability within the financial ecosystem. This year, FoSDA’s four workstreams specifically focus on the topics of Data and Methods, Policy and Regulations, Taxonomies and Biodiversity.

The new Policy & Regulations Working Group aims to engage on regulation and policies related to sustainable data practices globally.

FoSDA welcomes new members and supporters from all areas of the financial ecosystem to join our work and help to amplify our outputs and recommendations. For more information, please contact:
