Rebecca Mikula-Wright has been appointed chief executive of the Investor Group on Climate Change (IGCC).
She steps into the role with over 20 years’ experience in climate change, sustainability and investment banking in Hong Kong, Europe and Australia.
Mikula-Wright has held executive roles with a variety of sustainable-focused firms after starting her career as a senior credit analyst with ExxonMobil.
She has been the executive director of the Asia Investor Group on Climate Change (AIGCC) for almost five years and will continue to lead the AIGCC, managing both organisations that share a governance structure.
Mikula-Wright replaces Emma Herd who left IGCC after six years, to head up a new climate-focused sustainability practice with Ernst & Young in April.
IGCC is a collaboration of Australian and New Zealand investors focused on the impact that climate change has on the financial value of investments and the opportunities created by the transition to net zero emissions.
IGCC represents institutional investors with total funds under management of over US$2 trillion in Australia and New Zealand and US$20 trillion around the world. IGCC members cover over 7.5 million people in Australia and New Zealand.
