Organizational Capital Partners is a signatory to the CDSB statement on climate change disclosure and fiduciary duty

Organizational Capital Partners supports and is a signatory to the CDSB statement on climate change disclosure and fiduciary duty - a global collective commitment by companies, investors and others to strengthen and align climate-related corporate reporting in mainstream financial reports. Please find attached the list of signatories to the statement that will be released this week and promoted to secure further commitment, as well as the press release being distributed to global media. Please circulate these to your relevant departments and external contacts.

The statement will be mentioned at a number of events throughout Climate Week in New York this week, including opening day speeches of climate week, within the UN program of activities on Tuesday 23rd September 2014, several events hosted by the New York Stock Exchange and more.  

The Climate Week announcements in New York mark just the start of a sustained program of activity running in parallel to the official climate change negotiations up to COP 21 in Paris 2015.  It remains our intention to publish the statement in the mainstream financial press ‎at an opportune time, possibly during the IMF/World Bank annual meetings next month allowing CDSB to showcase this remarkable multi-stakeholder commitment on climate change disclosure in mainstream corporate filings and a necessary instrument to accelerate changes in economic and financial market activity.

The CDSB Secretariat will be tweeting throughout climate week - follow us @CDSBGlobal and join the conversation using the hashtag #fiduciary.
