This could be unfair. Probably is. But as we all know a usual complaint is that when an area, an occupation, becomes feminised then it becomes worse paid and less attention is paid to it.
Here’s the list of the peeps running the climate change campaign by some selection of the world’s major investors:
Seiji Kawazoe, Senior Stewardship Officer, Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Asset Management (SMTAM)
Rebecca Mikula-Wright, Director, Asia Investor Group on Climate Change
Andrew Gray, Director, ESG & Stewardship, AustralianSuper (current Steering Committee Chair)
Emma Herd, CEO, Investor Group on Climate Change (current Steering Committee Vice Chair)
Anne Simpson, interim Managing Investment Director, Board Governance & Sustainability, CalPERS
Mindy Lubber, CEO and President, Ceres
Stephanie Maier, Director of Responsible Investment, HSBC Global Asset Management
Stephanie Pfeifer, Chief Executive Officer, Institutional Investor Group on Climate Change
Laetitia Tankwe, Adviser to Ircantec President Jean-Pierre Costes, Groupe Caisse des dépôts
Fiona Reynolds, CEO, Principles for Responsible Investment
So, that’s the invasion of the power skirts. What does that tell us about how seriously investors are taking climate change?
