Sustainable transition-focused asset manager Impax announced today the appointment of Nana Li for the newly created role of Head of Sustainability & ESG, Asia Pacific. Based in Hong Kong, Li will be responsible for leading the firm’s sustainability, stewardship, advocacy, and engagement activities in the region.
Lisa Beauvilain, Head of Sustainability & ESG at Impax, said:
“Nana will be a hugely valuable addition to our Sustainability & ESG team as we increase our coverage and analysis with issuers in the region. She will pay a crucial role in leading Impax’s sustainability and stewardship work in Asia-Pacific.”
Li joins the firm from the Asian Corporate Governance Association (ACGA), most recently serving as Research and Project Director, China, responsible for researching corporate governance topics and conducting business developments in China, and co-authoring several publications. She also chaired AGCA’s China Working Group, leading a group of investors with AUM of over US$25 trillion on issues related to the Chinese market.
“This is an incredible opportunity to join one of the fastest growing asset managers investing in the transition to a more sustainable economy, with a proven legacy in this area. I am looking forward to working at Impax to further strengthen its ESG and stewardship activity in APAC.”
