LSEG appoints head of sustainable products

The London Stock Exchange Group has appointed David Harris as the new head of its sustainable product team.

Harris joined FTSE in 2002 and is responsible for implementing LSEG’s development of ESG disclosure and reporting guidance for its listed companies. In his new role he will be responsible for driving sustainable and ESG product development as well as chairing an internal working group in partnership with the FTSE Russell sustainable investment team.

“Sustainable finance is now close to the tipping point where it will become the norm. The finance and investment community can drive the solutions to secure a sustainable and net zero emission future. To achieve this there is a need for robust data and analytics,” said Harris.
