The lack of accessible, high-quality and consistent data remains one of the most significant barriers in the fight against climate change. On 26 June, prominent members of the global Climate Data Steering Committee will trade views on the key gaps in this space at a panel on the main stage of the Point Zero Forum in Zurich. They will discuss the role of new technologies and collaborative platforms in promoting greater accessibility to transition data and developing new business models.
At the Point Zero Forum’s panel discussion, the topic will be discussed by the following members of the Climate Data Steering Committee (CDSC): Mary Shapiro (Chair of CDSC and Vice Chair for Global Public Policy at Bloomberg), Ashley Alder (Chair of FCA Hong Kong), Daniela Stoffel (Swiss State Secretary for international finance), Ravi Menon (Managing Director Monetary Authority of Singapore). Moderation: Tanya König (finance.swiss).
The Climate Data Steering Committee
The CDSC was established by French President Emmanuel Macron and United Nations Special Envoy for Climate Ambition and Solutions Michael R. Bloomberg in June 2022. Chaired by Mary Schapiro, the CDSC aims to support the climate objectives of the United Nations and accelerate climate action by compiling accessible, high-quality climate data from the private sector that is critical to delivering a net-zero economy.
The Committee brings together an unparalleled group of global leaders including regulators, policymakers, and standards setters, informed by data providers and civil society organizations, to help address climate data challenges across the global economy. In 2022, it recommended the development of a unified, global, open climate data repository: the Net Zero Data Public Utility (NZDPU).
