UN Climate Change Conference – COP25. Madrid 2-13 December 2019

Goal: Create a comprehensive reporting framework (COP25) for financial and non-financial entities on climate change footprint suitable to be used in whatever Jurisdiction. COP25 will be metrics-agnostic, for structured data, advantaging from the lessons learnt in Banking and Insurance reporting, supported by Data Pointy Model methodology and XBRL syntax.

 Challenge: The existence of several metrics and models about sustainability and climate reporting. The European Commission “Consultation document on the update of the non-binding guidelines on non-financial reporting” requires very different disclosures, specially to Banking and Insurance  entities, with not a closed reference of metrics. The CDP, Spanish Association of Accountants (ACEA) and many other institutions, has also its own operational sustainability reporting But a commonly accepted taxonomy is still missing.

Strategy: Take advantage of the lessons learnt in the development of European Banking and Insurance reporting, with a very large model linking a lot of different metrics, breakdowns and disaggregations. The Data Point Model (DPM) methodology was created precisely to deal with this kind of complex reporting. DPM has currently a CEN CWA status and it has been presented to ISO.

Proposal: Initiate an effort, based in volunteers, for a DPM framework integrating all the existing models for climate reporting. Our role is put together all the reference models in a workable reporting solution. This kick-off exercise would have as perfect natural hosting space the UN Climate Change Conference. Tentative kick-off meeting/Webinar: December 5th

Key success factors:

  1. Contribute to the UN Climate Change Challenge
  2. Contribute to the European Climate efforts
  3. Visualize the DPM advantages when dealing with complex reporting challenge
  4. Deal with a complex model in which Eurofiling practitioners have a lot of expertise
  5. Build a sustainable volunteer team, under the umbrella of Eurofiling Foundation.

Opportunity window: UN Climate Change Conference COP25 is to be held 2-13 December 2019 in Madrid (under the Presidency of Chile) The New European Commission, just starting on duty, has the climate change in the top priority. The kick-off meeting for the flagship Banking Taxonomy COREP (birth place of DPM methodology) took place in Madrid 15 years ago.

Convenors: Eurofiling Foundation and XBRL Spain proudly convene the initiative. XBRL Spain is looking for hosting space in the (or near to) UN Climate Change Conference

Team and resources: Volunteers and companies ready to work in a zero-budget approach, according to the Bylaws of the Eurofiling Foundation.

Governance: Self organized working team. In the rare case of disputes, the President of the Eurofiling Foundation has the ultimate word.
