XRB Wins prestigious award

Last night at the KangaNews Debt Capital Markets Awards held in Sydney, Michele Embling and April Mackenzie were awarded Australasian Market People of the Year for their work to deliver the Aotearoa New Zealand Climate Standards. 

Market participants gave this accolade to the External Reporting Board: saying:

"New Zealand is well progressed on the journey to integrating financial markets, sustainability and the world of regulatory and legislative policy. A key part of that process is the country’s commitment to transparent climate disclosures from all key economic actors.

New Zealand passed a significant landmark late in 2022 with the publication of its climate-related disclosure standards – a piece of work delivered over three consultative iterations over 18 months. The External Reporting Board steered this process, and the KangaNews Awards acclaim the efforts of its Chair, Michele Embling, and Chief Executive, April Mackenzie, for delivering an outcome that market participants believe meets the needs and expectations of all stakeholders."
