Gabriel Webber Ziero
Head of Regulatory Advisory

Gabriel Webber Ziero is the Head of Regulatory Advisory at ECOFACT.

Gabriel is responsible for helping clients prepare and implement compliance strategies that address sustainable finance and corporate responsibility requirements, for example, European regulations such as the Sustainable Finance Disclosures Regulation, the Sustainability Taxonomy Regulation, as well as the upcoming mandatory climate change obligations. He also leads the team that delivers ECOFACT’s Policy Outlook. Gabriel has been a key player in drafting OECD due diligence guidance documents that focus on the financial sector and are frequently referenced by regulators.

He believes that the best way to successfully meet 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 what’s expected. 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.
