IOA Annual Report 2022


ESG and the Business of Sustainability Through IOA’s collaborative work with the U.S. – Mexico Climate Change Working Group , and together with the UC San Diego Center for U.S-Mexican Studies, the Brookings Institution and the Tecnológico de Monterrey, we finalized a policy report with recommendations and made presentations with key stakeholders in Mexico, such as the Confederación Patronal de la República Mexicana and the Consejo Coordinador Empresarial (CEE). A T o expand IOA’s leadership in the area of sustainability leadership, IOA recruited its first Non-Resident Fellow, Soffía Alarcón, to support our work on ESG and carbon markets. With the support of Soffía, in April IOA published a technical briefing on the role of climate related risk disclosure regulations and their potential consequences for small and medium firms in LATAM. In addition, IOA organized an expert panel entitled, “Decarbonization across supply chains. The role of regulations on climate risk disclosures” organized as part of the United Nations 2022 Latin America and Caribbean Climate Week held in the Dominican Republic in July. For this expert panel, IOA also published a p roceedings brief. IOA also co-hosted the U.S.-Mexico Logistics and Supply Chain Leaders Meeting in Los Angeles, California together with the U.S.-Mexico Chamber of Commerce, California Chapter to discuss how the new proposed SEC regulation on Scope 3 emissions will affect all binational supply chains.
