Until recently, climate disclosures were a mostly voluntary part of doing business. But soon, they could become mandatory. Like financial disclosures, climate disclosures would be overseen by individual regulatory authorities in different countries around the world. These regulatory authorities are members of the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO).  

Jane Diplock, this week’s guest, chaired the IOSCO for seven years and the New Zealand Securities Commission for nine years, during the Global Financial Crisis and the recovery. On the show, she explains how IOSCO sets global norms and standards for securities market regulations. Jane talks about championing digitization as a way to make ESG standards comparable. In this episode, Jane also spoke to us about breaking glass ceilings and why climate is critical in achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
