Quinbrook has announced a new appointment to help guide its climate policy, ESG and responsible investment strategies.
Renewables, storage and grid support infrastructure investor Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners has appointed Fiona Reynolds to its advisory board.
Ms Reynolds has been the CEO of London-based Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) for the past nine years where she has overseen a network of signatories totalling more than 4,000 institutions globally representing US$121 trillion in assets.
“Few other individuals have blazed the trail that Fiona has in placing responsible investment at the forefront of priorities for institutional investors the world over,” said Quinbrook co-founder and managing partner David Scaysbrook.
“She has been a true leader and her tireless efforts have been important and impactful. We are excited to welcome Fiona to our board of senior advisors and know she will be highly influential in helping to shape Quinbrook’s future,” Mr Scaysbrook said.
Other roles held by Ms Reynolds include board member of UN Global Compact, Steering Committee - Climate Action IOO and the Investor Agenda, member of the Global Advisory Council on Stranded Assets at Oxford University, and member of the advisory board for the Green Investment Principle for the Belt and Road.
“As we head to COP26 in Glasgow, we must move from commitment to action, with investors pro-actively changing the way they invest and this includes investing right now in climate solutions, the technology and energy solutions that will power the industry of tomorrow,” Ms Reynolds said.
“Business as usual – investing as usual – is not going to get us to Net Zero and that is why I am delighted to be joining the advisory board of Quinbrook. In my life post PRI, I want to work with people who are making a real difference in the world,” added Ms Reynolds.
