WWF Singapore sustainable finance executive Adrian Fenton is moving on after more than two years with the conservation group to join Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC), based in London.
Fenton, who was vice president of Asia sustainability finance at WWF, moves into a new role as senior programme manager at IIGCC.
His job will involve supporting the Net Zero Asset Managers initiative, which aims to galvanise support from asset managers towards achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 or sooner.
IIGCC is a European membership body working with investors towards the transition to net-zero in support of the Paris Agreement on climate change.
Before joining WWF in 2020, Fenton was climate governance manager for C40 Cities, a network of cities working to confront the climate crisis.
He has also worked for the government of Fiji, as a national advisor for the Pacific island’s climate adaptation plan, and as a consultant in various organisations, including Oxfam in Ethiopia, poverty alleviation charity CARE in Ghana, and research group International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) in London.
