Gabriel Webber Ziero
Head of ECOFACT Policy Outlook

Gabriel Webber Ziero is an ECOFACT senior consultant specialized in strategic regulatory compliance in the areas of sustainable finance and corporate responsibility as well as Head of ECOFACT Policy Outlook.

He believes that the best way to successfully address new regulatory expectations is by integrating them into existing processes and raising awareness about them across an institution. This approach reduces costs, generates fast results and, most importantly, ensures the growth of coherent and consistent behavior that aligns with regulatory expectations.

He has been a key player in the drafting processes of due diligence guidance documents addressing the financial sector at the OECD level, which are frequently referenced by regulators. He has hands-on experience in supporting financial institutions in designing tailored strategies to address current and emerging regulatory expectations.

Gabriel is licensed to practice as a lawyer in Brazil and holds a doctorate in International and European Law from Roma Tre University (Italy), as well as an LL.M. from Leiden University (Netherlands). He is a lecturer at the Certificate of Advanced Studies in Sustainable Finance program of the University of Zurich.
