Standard Chartered hires Marisa Drew as Director of Sustainability

Drew will also join the CCIB Management Team.

Emerging markets-focussed lender Standard Chartered said on Thursday it had selected supportability veteran Marisa Drew as Chief Sustainability Officer, effective July 1. Drew joins from Credit Suisse (SIX:CSGN), where she held a similar job, and is a conspicuous individual from different industry bodies connected to sustainability issues, including the Milken Institute Center for Strategic Philanthropy. At StanChart, Drew will direct the bank’s endeavors to arrive at net-zero carbon emissions across its loan book and report to Simon Cooper, Chief Executive of Corporate, Commercial and Institutional Banking (CCIB).

The appointment comes as banks across the globe are increasingly being pushed by regulators, policymakers and investors to do more to help in the global transition to a low-carbon economy – particularly in emerging markets.

“The need to mobilise private capital at scale in developing markets is critical, and I look forward to partnering with the bank’s dedicated sustainability professionals and colleagues across the network to help build on this excellent foundation,” Drew said.
