Today’s episode is all about how to navigate the increasingly complex landscape of climate disclosures, sustainability reporting frameworks and green taxonomies that have emerged over the last few years.
This episode will address:
- What role disclosures should be playing in driving the transition to a low carbon economy
- Recent efforts to move beyond a narrow focus on climate to incorporate factors such as nature, biodiversity and water into disclosure frameworks
- The attributes that risk and finance professionals will need to ensure that they understand the risks and are supporting the transition, rather than greenwashing

Mardi McBrien – Managing Director at the Climate Disclosure Standards Board (CDSB)
For over a decade Mardi has played a leading role in driving the integration of climate and environmental information into corporate reporting with the same rigor as financial information globally.
Prior to CDSB, Mardi enjoyed an eclectic career. Among other challenging roles, she led flagship environmental campaigns for WWF, worked on the United Kingdom’s carbon market policy for their Department for Energy and Climate Change and the public-private partnership management for the UK timber supply chain.
Mardi is a member of the UK Financial Reporting Council Advisory Panel as well as a fellow of the RSA. She has participated in a number of industry-related advisory boards and committees as part of her role at CDSB. These include the IFRS Foundation Technical Readiness Working Group for the new International Sustainability Standards Board, GRI Stakeholder Council, Corporate Reporting Dialogue, Australian Sustainable Finance Initiative (ASFI) and the IIRC Council.
Originally qualifying as a forester and environmental scientist (Melbourne University) and an agricultural economist (SOAS), Mardi volunteered as a trustee of the International Tree Foundation, one of the world’s oldest environmental NGOs. She is also a founding Board member of WOCAN – Women Organizing for Change in Agriculture and Natural Resource Management.
