What are your main responsibilities?
As part of EVORA’s Climate Resilience Services team, my responsibilities include supporting clients to understand and manage their climate risk, leading on our Taskforce on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) services, and continuously advancing our thought leadership in these areas. I’m also involved with the development of our SIERA platform and ESG Strategy service lines, particularly for all things climate-related.
What’s the best part of your job?
The best part of my work is helping to build structure and clarity around an inherently uncertain topic. There is little doubt that the climate is changing, but we can’t yet plot on a timeline the exact implications for assets, markets and people. A lot of intellectual curiosity and creativity is still required in this field as the industry collectively works towards estimating climate risk in financial terms – all the while working to prevent or mitigate these projected outcomes.
What book are you currently reading?
I’ve been enjoying Barack Obama’s new release, A Promised Land. It’s a thorough account of the very weird experience of being the President of the United States, written by one of the best writers to ever hold the office.
I’m also finishing up The Great Believers by Rebecca Makkai, an outstanding novel (just have the Kleenex within reach).
