Global re/insurer Chubb has appointed Alexandra Waldman as Climate Sustainability Manager.
In this newly created global role, Waldman will help to identify and implement opportunities for climate-related products and services as well as encourage employee engagement in climate sustainability issues.
She will also be in charge of establishing a framework against which to measure progress of the company’s sustainability initiatives.
She will report to Paul Krump, Vice Chairman, Chubb Group, Global Underwriting and Claims.
Waldman joined the company, then named ACE, in 2011 as an environmental engineer in the North America environmental risk insurance business.
In 2018, she was named Senior Environmental Program Manager, where she was responsible for monitoring and improving the environmental sustainability of Chubb’s operations and business activities.
This included monitoring greenhouse gas emission measurements and reduction goals, environmental reporting, and certifications of Chubb offices with the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED rating system.
Prior to joining Chubb, Waldman completed the associate program in the environmental division of Zurich Financial Services.
Krump commented on her appointment: “Chubb recognises the reality of climate change and the substantial impact of human activity on our planet. As an insurer, our first responsibility is to use our expertise in risk management to provide products and services that protect individuals, businesses and communities, which are often becoming increasingly affected by climate change.
“Alex brings to this role both strong operational and business line experience, as well as technical risk engineering expertise.
“With her skills and passion for the environment, Alex will contribute to Chubb’s efforts to improve the climate resiliency of its operating footprint, that of its clients, business partners and suppliers, and the wider community.”
