Global ESG modelling and analytics platform BlueOnion has appointed Jeanne Ng as its chief sustainability officer with responsibility for informing and supporting investors on their sustainability journeys.
Ng has more than 30 years of experience in the environmental consulting and corporate sustainability fields and is one of Hong Kong's leading experts in air and greenhouse gas emission inventories.
Among her other accomplishments, she was instrumental in setting up the Hong Kong government’s first Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory and was the author of its first version of the Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory Manual.
She joined CLP in 2003 and was involved in starting up its group environmental affairs, group sustainability, and more recently the CLP Research Institute functions. She established the data management system and governance processes necessary for the delivery of CLP’s award-winning Sustainability Report and was a key contributor to setting up CLP Group’s first renewable energy targets and Climate Vision 2050 carbon reduction targets.
"With the increasing uptake of ESG [environmental, social and governance factors] in the finance industry and the commensurate concerns over potential greenwashing, we must encourage and support investors to genuinely contribute to sustainability,” Ng says.
Elsa Pau, group CEO of BlueOnion, adds that Ng will “strengthen the proprietary research and data modelling that helps players in the financial ecosystem gain better clarity in their ESG performance and enhance stewardship practices against greenwashing behaviour”.
