10 December | Madrid

Flexible reporting methodologies give way for greenwashing, providing a free pass to companies and nations who are promising far more than they are prepared or planning to deliver. Rigorous reporting standards are needed to hold entities to their commitments and in other cases, analyse gaps. Such standards will clearly distinguish between good and weak performers in the sectors that need to decarbonise, and offer insight into how various sectors support and overlap with each other. This panel will discuss successful undertakings in terms of developing sustainable development analysis which promote and disclose dynamic incorporation of both emission reduction efforts and sustainable development priorities such as those covered with the SDGs.

Joining Mark in the discussion will be:

Mark Lewis, member of Carbon Tracker Advisory Board and Head of Climate Change Research, BNP Paribas

Carlos Sallé Alonso, Senior Vice-President of Energy Policies and Climate Change, Iberdrola

Suzanne Greene, Program Manager, Sustainable Supply Chains Initiative, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

Matthew Phillips, Reporting & Tracking Team Lead, UNFCCC Global Climate Action Portal

Moderator: Perrine Toledano, Economics and Policy Researcher, Columbia University Center on Sustainable Investment
