Switzerland & Singapore to Join the Global Climate Data Project
Important partnerships with the Net-Zero Data Public Utility (NZDPU) have been announced by prominent public and private stakeholders from Switzerland and Singapore.
A powerful alliance led by French President Emmanuel Macron and Michael Bloomberg began the NZDPU last year to much fanfare.
Once finished, it will store publicly available corporate climate data.
Global standard-setters, ESG data providers, and the GFANZ finance sector climate project are supporting members.
Former SEC and TCFD boss Mary Schapiro serves as its chair.
Some of the most recent projects to bring together from the collaborative climate data space are:
The open-source platform OS Climate
The legacy CDP disclosure library
The EU's sustainability data repository ESAP
Hong Kong's GSF data repository
The NZDPU is the newest effort to do so! According to current plans, it will finally be transferred to the UN.
Singapore and Switzerland sign up to global climate data project
Separately, the Singapore Exchange (SGX) and the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) have inked an agreement to transfer climate data that has been given by businesses on the island nation.
The partnership seeks to make use of disclosures made using the ESGenome platform, which MAS developed and is presently being tested by SGX-listed businesses.
This platform leverages data grabs and automation to streamline the disclosure process.
In the first quarter of 2024, work on the collaboration will start.
