By providing an innovative platform for tracking and managing carbon footprints, Persefoni supports businesses in navigating the complex and ever-evolving landscape of climate policies and regulations.

Emily Pierce, the newly appointed Chief Global Policy Officer at Persefoni, boasts an impressive career in global regulatory affairs. Her previous positions include Associate General Counsel and VP of Global Regulatory Climate Disclosure at Persefoni. Prior to joining Persefoni, Emily played an instrumental role in the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s engagement with global regulators, particularly on emerging sustainability standards and regulatory requirements.

Before stepping into her new role at Persefoni, Emily held the position of Assistant Director in the Office of International Affairs at the U.S. SEC. In this role, she provided valuable insights on cross-border regulatory policy matters, with a particular focus on climate and sustainability disclosure.

Pierce’s influential role in multilateral work streams, such as the IOSCO Sustainable Finance Task Force, exemplifies her leadership qualities and commitment to advancing global sustainability efforts.

Emily’s appointment comes at a time when the global pursuit of climate and sustainability transparency is intensifying. Her vast experience and international relationships, fostered during her tenure at the U.S. SEC, will be vital in supporting Persefoni’s customers and partners.

Persefoni CEO & Co-Founder Kentaro Kawamori said, “Emily’s promotion to Chief Global Policy Officer aligns with this critical phase in the global pursuit of climate and sustainability transparency and disclosure. Her insights and international relationships will be pivotal in ensuring the support we provide Persefoni customers and partners.”

Emily Pierce also emphasized, “Enhanced climate disclosure is a global imperative. Both investors and companies need comparable and reliable carbon footprint data to comprehend climate-related risks and adhere to emerging disclosure regulations and standards. In my new role, I am excited to help expand Persefoni’s commitment and continue supporting customers worldwide as new regulations unfold and global market demands evolve.”
