Edentree adds members to sustainability panel

EdenTree Investment Management has added two new members to its responsible investment advisory panel.

The new appointments are:

Annette Fergusson, an independent consultant and Director of Threefold (Sustainable Advisory Services). She advises companies, industry associations and non-governmental organisations on human rights issues including digital rights, children’s rights and labour standards. Annette was previously Vodafone Group’s Head of Sustainable Business and led the company’s human rights programme for over 10 years.

Paul Simpson, an advisor to organisations focused on accelerating the transition to a net zero economy, co-founded the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) a pioneering global climate and environmental disclosure organisation. He initiated the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) in 2014 and has held board positions with SBTi, We Mean Business, EIRIS, The Investor Agenda and the Climate Disclosure Standards Board (now part of the International Sustainability Standards Board).

Annette Fergusson, Member of the EdenTree Responsible Investment Advisory Panel, says, “At a time when the ESG community is being challenged and managers’ green credentials are being put to test, we are delighted to be welcomed onto EdenTree’s advisory board. We bring with us a wealth of knowledge that will provide an additional layer of expertise on these important topics and strengthen people’s confidence in the firm to continue its legacy in responsible and sustainable investing.”
