By Ryan Smith
International specialty re/insurance group Chaucer has announced the appointment of Simon Tighe as head of the environmental, social and governance (ESG) group, in addition to his current role as head of the investments and treasury group.
Tighe has been instrumental in driving Chaucer’s ESG sustainability strategy, the company said.
He played a key role in the creation of the ESG Balanced Scorecard, Chaucer’s flagship ESG initiative, developed in partnership with Moody’s.
The scorecard allows businesses to measure their ESG performance on up to 158 metrics.
“I am delighted to announce Simon’s new role as head of the ESG group,” said John Fowle, CEO of Chaucer. “He has been a driving force behind our ESG strategy, particularly the design and development of our ESG Balanced Scorecard with Moody’s, which allows for an objective measurement of ESG. At Chaucer, we are committed to adding meaningful value to all our partners as we strive to support the transition and deliver on our sustainability goals, including becoming net zero by 2050 and carbon neutral by 2030.
“I look forward to continuing and building on Chaucer’s ESG achievements to date,” said Tighe. “Being a true force for good is at the heart of our ESG approach. I’m excited to lead the visible impact we can have on the way our clients and counterparts manage and mitigate their ESG risk.
