Former Standard Chartered COO joins Climate Bonds Board of Trustees

Doris Honold has joined the Board of Trustees of the Climate Bonds Initiative. Other trustees are: Paul Bodnar, Simon Cooper, Karl Mallon, Bryan Martell, Nicholas Silver and Professor Cynthia Williams.

Until last year, Honold was Standard Chartered's Group Chief Operating Officer and a member of its executive committee. She currently serves as a non-executive director of Credit Suisse International, chairing its board risk committee, and is also an advisor to a number of pre-IPO fin-tech companies.

Honold's career spans more than 25 years in financial services and she has worked in Frankfurt, Tokyo, Singapore and London. She will be applying her extensive experience in helping Climate Bond’s further international expansion.

Honold says: "I am thrilled to be joining Climate Bonds at such a critical time. We must achieve a significant shift in decarbonising the world’s economy in the next 10 years.

"I am convinced that the power and innovation of capital markets will help governments, banks and corporations to meet the ambitious goals necessary to confront climate change and to create a sustainable future for all of us."
