Swedbank Robur recruits Caroline Sundin as Sustainability Analyst
Swedbank Robur has recruited Caroline Sundin as Sustainability analyst. She comes most recently from a role at MCSI's Climate Risk Center in Zurich, where she worked on the development of MCSI's Climate Value-At-Risk.
After graduating from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) (Sweden), Caroline Sundin has worked with product development, data analysis and quality management of KPIs related to the climate transition.
“We are very happy to welcome Caroline Sundin to Swedbank Robur. Her experience and cutting-edge expertise related to data analysis, reporting and follow-up methods linked to the climate transition, is fully in line with our dedicated work to achieve the tough goals we have set in our climate strategy," says Pia Gisgård, Head of Sustainability and Governance at Swedbank Robur.
During her studies at KTH and in her previous assignments, including working for the FinTech company Carbon Delta in Zurich, Caroline Sundin has had a continuous focus on the climate transition. She has also been involved in the development of UNEPFI’s* report "Changing course: A comprehensive investor guide to scenario-based methods for climate risk assessment, in response to TCFD**".
"The climate issue is central when it comes to sustainability. Limiting warming is an important prerequisite and key to achieving virtually all of the UN's global development goals. I am really looking forward to working with Swedbank Robur to continue to pursue these issues, and to be involved in developing the standards and methods that can help shift investments in a more sustainable direction," says Caroline Sundin, Sustainability Analyst at Swedbank Robur.
Caroline Sundin started her new position in August 2021 and will be part of the Sustainability and Governance team.
