What is FoSDA?

Purpose: There is now global acknowledgement that the climate crisis is a real and immediate threat, climate concerns as well as broader environmental and social considerations need to start moving into mainstream risk assessment and opportunity analysis. Capital markets are not understanding and integrating material sustainability considerations into their investment decisions, often resulting in capital being allocated to inefficient and even environmentally or socially damaging projects and assets.
FoSDA has been formed to address this urgent situation and foster collaboration in the ecosystem.

Mission: Our express purpose is to identify and accelerate the reliable, actionable ESG data and related technology that is needed for improved investor decision making on the global journey to sustainable development.

The Future of Sustainable Data Alliance is working together and in partnership with the World Economic Forum to answer the question:

What data do investors and governments need to meet the requirements of both regulators, citizens and market demand for sustainable investments and portfolios to 2030?


FoSDA has the following three goals

ESG Data Requirements

To articulate the future data requirements investors and governments need to accurately integrate ESG data into decision making processes.

Technology and Alternative Data

To highlight new technology and data sets that can support a just transition to sustainable development.

UN SDG Impact Data

To determine data needs and how to satisfy them for investors wanting to take greater account of SDG-related risks and impacts.
