Following an extensive expression of interest exercise (EoI) that was conducted with the IEMA membership in February, a new sustainable finance network steering group has now been established.
The group will meet for the first time in due course to elect a chairperson and begin establishing a work programme for the remainder of 2023.
The group’s remit is to deliver policy and practice activity that advances the sustainable finance agenda and ESG (environmental, social and governance) more widely both domestically and internationally.
The group is comprised of the following IEMA members:
- Adrian Barnes, Head of Analytics, Green Investment Group
- Hayden Morgan, Partner and Head of Sustainable Finance Consultancy, Pinsent Masons
- Albert Seoane Miguel, Sustainability Analyst, EcoAct
- Chris Clarke, Climate Change and Sustainability Manager, UK Export Finance
- Claire Cummins, Head of ESG, Climate Fund Managers
- Colette Curran, Director, Sustainable Infrastructure, Arup
- David Luck, former Head of Sustainability (UK financial services)
- Denise Prairie Wright, Executive Director, Boreal Capital
- Harriet Parker, Head of Sustainability and ESG, Low Carbon
- Mark Browning, Director of Environmental Management & Sustainability, Jacobs
- Neal Barker, Director, WSP
- Tilly Shaw, Associate Director, Verco
- Amelia Woodley, Director of ESG, Speedy Services
As a reminder, the details of the EoI exercise can be found here. Given the volume and quality of applications, the decision was taken to appoint 13 members to the group, rather than the 10 that were initially advertised.
Members can subscribe to future communications relating to sustainable finance and to updates from the group itself here. For further information about the role of the group please contact [email protected]
