September 18, 2019 – Hong Kong: Global environmental non-profit CDP announces the appointment of Pratima Divgi as the new regional director of CDP Hong Kong, Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand, effective 2 September 2019. In her new role, Ms. Divgi will lead the development and implementation of CDP’s regional efforts in increasing environmental disclosure and action among corporates, investors, local governments and policymakers.
Ms. Divgi joins CDP after nearly two decades of experience in finance, most recently in private equity with Aberdeen Standard Investments. She was also part of the private equity environmental, social and governance (ESG) working group which involved formulation of the ESG policy and leading the policy implementation for Asia-Pacific private equity investments.
At CDP’s regional office in Hong Kong, Ms. Divgi will engage with companies, investors, cities, and states in the region to drive forward their low-carbon transition and action on water security and deforestation.
“My journey into ESG and sustainable finance has been a long time in the making and I am excited to steer my passion into the next phase of my career,” said Ms Divgi. “CDP is at the forefront of corporate disclosure on climate change, water security and forests with over 7,000 companies and over 750 cities, states and regions reporting through the platform in 2018.”
“Sustainability is the next frontier for business and finance. I look forward to working with regional stakeholders to better measure and manage environmental risks and opportunities, and raising CDP’s efforts in one of the world’s most vulnerable regions to climate change and water risks.”
