In the face of climate change and socially responsible investment (SRI) principles, environmental metrics for driving and managing sustainability creates major data and reporting challenges for most organisations.

For instance, for carbon foot printing and accounting alone, there are potentially huge data volumes on carbon and energy which will come from different sources in different formats, at different cycles/frequencies (and likely with different assumptions).

Thus the data management challenge is not simple, nor is the process of recycling that data back as intelligence to the organisations concerned. Furthermore, if a key objective of carbon accounting is to create business (and sector) change, then existing processes need changing and adapting so that they become iterative for carbon minimisation. That is not possible without the intelligence gleaned from carbon accounting.

This book focuses on these issues, and pulls together reference work by academia and businesses to address the challenges, highlighting promising developments.

Readership: Investment bankers, researchers in think-tanks exploring sustainability, and academics and post-graduates interested in the field of climate change management.

About the Author:

Richard Max-Lino is a highly experienced strategy and transformation professional, with analytical, planning and implementation roles across a wide range of public sector and private organisations in Europe and the US, across functional roles. Beneficiaries of his work include the International Monetary Fund, various UK Government bodies, the European Commission, Barclays, Lloyd's of London, Catlin, Guy Carpenter and AONBenfield (as the Lighthill Risk Network).

In his role as a Green Economy Strategist, he spent 16 months leading the programme on the Financial Services Sector for the UK's Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). He substantially improved the provision of NERC's science asset base (knowledge, technologies and people) for the financial services and related sectors. This also meant using his knowledge and information management expertise to help in the exploitation of the NERC knowledge base on the issues of climate change, sustainability, and water, forestry and biodiversity, linking these with environmental, social and governance (ESG) policies in industry, and socially responsible investing (SRI). Prior to this, Richard developed the policy for investing in science-based innovation in financial services for the UK Government, and designed and delivered the strategy which included the programme for the Financial Services Knowledge Transfer Network (launched October 2009).

He has an MBA from Rotterdam (a fast track graduate, afforded to the top 10% of the class), an MSc in Ergonomics from London University, a BSc Hons in Psychology and is a PRINCE2 Practitioner. Richard is preparing a book series on sustainability and risk, blending an analysis of the science with its relevance to the financial services sector and policymakers in key government institutions in the context of future economic challenges.
