Standard Chartered has announced the appointment of Dana Barsky as Global Head of Sustainability Strategy and Net Zero.

Dana will drive key sustainability agenda items that include overseeing the Group’s delivery of its Net Zero commitments across scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions; accelerating sustainability integration across the Group’s global businesses; further developing sustainability-related relationships across the public and private sectors; and creating new sustainable partnerships that complement Standard Chartered’s strategic initiatives and enhance the Bank’s engagement with civil society.

Based in Singapore, Dana will report to Marisa Drew, Group Chief Sustainability Officer (CSO), and become a member of the CSO Management Team.

Dana has more than 25 years of corporate finance, M&A and sustainability experience. She most recently held the position of President of Growth for Good, a publicly listed special purpose acquisition company focused on inclusive, innovative and sustainable companies with strong business fundamentals and high growth potential.

Dana previously held a variety of sustainability roles at Credit Suisse, including Global Head of Sustainable Finance, working with companies to finance their growth and transition to lower carbon-intensive business models; Head of Sustainable Products and Partnerships, creating bespoke sustainable funds and structured products and partnering with leading asset managers, multi-lateral development banks and NGOs to bring sustainable investment opportunities to private banking and institutional clients; and COO of the bank’s sustainability practice.

She brings extensive sustainability, advisory and capital markets expertise and is uniquely well- positioned to help drive our sustainability strategy and the embedding of our net zero commitment within the bank. Dana’s appointment complements our strong bench of talent within the CSO Leadership Team and underscores sustainability as a core strategic pillar of Standard Chartered.”
