The Aztec Group has appointed Caroline Mantoura as its Head of ESG & Sustainability.
Caroline is based in the UK and in this newly-created role, she will work closely with Aztec’s clients in support of their sustainability goals, as well as embedding ESG principles across Aztec’s operations and processes.
Caroline (pictured) joins Aztec from Accenture, where she held the position of Director of Operations following a decade in Accenture Strategy as a senior member of the Sustainability practice. Her clients covered the consumer goods, agriculture, energy and utilities, mining and telecoms industries across Europe, Asia, sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East.
“Being transparent in their approach to sustainability has become one of our clients’ top priorities,” Caroline said, adding: “This is partly due to regulation, but also increased expectations from investors and our clients’ own ambitions.
“I believe there’s an incredible opportunity for us to support our clients in achieving long-term, sustainable growth across their investments, as well as making a positive impact on the world around us, and I’m looking forward to working with them towards delivering their goals.”
Caroline started her career as a mechanical design engineer at Arup, a global engineering consultancy specialising in low-carbon infrastructure and green buildings, where she first pivoted to the world of ESG in 2004, working on the third generation of the GRI guidelines.
Aztec Group Chief Client Officer, James Gow, said: “Our clients are increasingly asking us how we can support them in achieving their sustainability goals, and I am delighted to welcome Caroline to the Aztec Group to lead this work. Caroline comes with a wealth of experience across multiple industries and joins at the perfect time as our ESG and Sustainability services go from strength to strength.”
