Our Chief Sustainability Officer, Jessica Alsford, leads our efforts to promote sustainability through the global capital markets in partnership with divisions across the firm. She heads Global Sustainable Finance, which partners with senior leaders in our three businesses as well as support services and risk and control functions.
“We recognize the significant potential for issues like climate change and inequality to impact our clients, investments, operations, employees, and local communities, and we consider those consequences in everything we do,” Alsford says. “There are also tremendous opportunities for us be part of the solution as we work with all stakeholders to try and create a more sustainable society.”
