Addressing climate risks and climate-related socioecological
and financial impacts 

An understanding of the social, economic, governance and political (ESG) issues arising from ecological changes and variability such as

 

  • climate change

  • biodiversity loss

  • biogeochemical flows changes

  • land-system change

  • ocean acidification

is key to building corporate regenerative and sustainable values. 

Hi, I'm Catherine Chong

I help companies and investors to understand, integrate and adapt to corporate sustainable and regenerative values.

ESG, Sustainability & Regenerative Advisor

18 Years of Sustainability, Impact Investing and Tech Professional Experience in Asia, North America, and UK. 

A strategist and an analyst by nature, I work with companies to identify, link and then disentangle economic, ecological, social, and governance (ESG) risks and impacts into corporate decisions.

My professional experience extends from corporate consulting for fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) groups, private equity and sovereign wealth funds, to impact fund structuring and management.

My expertise includes translating complex socio-ecological systems thinking and component 'feedback' into corporate decisions. 

My professional experience extends from corporate consulting for fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) groups, private equity and sovereign wealth funds, to impact fund structuring and management.

The projects in my portfolio include national green accounting, rainforests and wildlife conservation, sustainable crops certification, ethical lending and investing, payment-for-ecosystem services schemes like carbon cap-and-trade, and sustainable product strategy in food, fashion, and other consumer goods.

In  2020, I co-founded Farms to Feed Us, a community interest company and became the founding member of the Consortium for Labelling for the Environment, Animal Welfare and Regenerative Farming (CLEAR) to support the UK transition to agroecology.
