Standards New Zealand is seeking feedback from relevant stakeholders on the International Organization for Standardization’s (ISO) proposal for the development of a new field of technical activity, ‘Sustainable finance’. All responses submitted to Standards New Zealand will serve to generate a New Zealand position on the proposal. Voting on the proposal closes on 23 August 2018, please provide your feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org by 9 August 2018.
The programme of work will promote the integration of sustainability considerations and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices into institutional investment decision-making and wider finance management. It will ultimately look to support the alignment of the global financial system with sustainable development goals.
