Future of Sustainable Data Alliance Forms Policy and Regulations Working Group

The Future of Sustainable Data Alliance (FoSDA),  the voice of the global sustainable data ecosystem,  is pleased to announce the creation of its new Policy & Regulations Working Group aimed at advancing sustainable data practices and policies worldwide.

The new working group will focus on providing strategic and technical input on matters related to policy and regulatory developments with respect to sustainability data analytics, indexes, and products. It will seek to engage with a broad range of stakeholders, including standard setters, policy makers, and regulators, and be a source of expertise to its members and broader financial markets participants as developments in this field continue to move at pace. 

We are pleased to launch the Policy and Regulations Working Group, which will be at the heart of advancing FoSDA’s vision. The working group will provide strategic and technical insights to help inform the actions of policy makers and regulators globally.

The Policy & Regulations Working Group will be co-chaired by Ola Ajadi, Head of Government Relations & Regulatory Strategy, UK MEA at LSEG (London Stock Exchange Group) and Martina Macpherson, Head of ESG Product Management at SIX, and is open to all FoSDA members and supporters to join and contribute.  The working group already includes representatives from S&P Global, Moody’s, Bloomberg, ESG Book, Clarity AI, CDP and OMFIF. 

"I am delighted to be co-chair of the working group. Data is vital in supporting firms and society in addressing climate change and navigating broader sustainability issues, and will be integral in achieving the transition to net zero. We are committed to this mission and look forward to working with policymakers, regulators, and standard setters as they look to further develop

rules and frameworks in this field," said Ola Ajadi, Co-Chair of the Policy and Regulations Working group

"I am excited to be a board member of FoSDA and a Co-Chair of the newly-formed Policy and Regulations working group. Given the complexity related to multiple standards, frameworks, and methods in ESG, it is mission-critical to connect and engage with key stakeholders for more clarity, comparability and consistency of sustainability content and to deliver best in class solutions for the market," added Martina Macpherson, Co-Chair of the Policy and Regulations Working group.

The launch of the new FoSDA Policy and Regulations Working group marks an important step forward and is part of the FoSDA’s transition to become the leading voice of the global sustainable data ecosystem. As FoSDA continues to grow, it remains committed to make valuable recommendations to accelerate the pathways for sustainable finance and investment decision-making.
