Smart has appointed Rowena Humphreys as its  Sustainability Director, a new role for the company. 

The appointment comes as Smart looks to build even further on its sustainability credentials, and achieve its commitment to becoming a net-zero business, with a number of initiatives both through its global reach, and the UK’s Smart Pension Master Trust.

Michelle Darracott, Chief Strategy Officer at Smart, said: 

“As part of our strategic commitment to become a net-zero company, I am delighted to welcome Rowena to Smart. Her depth of expertise in environmental sustainability and economic inclusion make her the ideal candidate to play an integral part in achieving our ambitions of becoming a leading sustainable business. 

Rowena Humphreys,  Sustainability Director at Smart, added: 

“Smart has laid the foundations for its sustainability journey and there are already some exciting initiatives in place. Given the pace of industry change combined with Smart’s ambitious plans means we need to ramp this up and I’m excited about taking on this role. Looking at how we can both identify and communicate existing initiatives, as well as explore new ideas for how we can add additional value to Smart through its sustainability offering.” 

Prior to joining Smart, Rowena consulted for 20+ international organisations and INGOs, on the design and implementation of strategic sustainability programs, including working with agencies such as UNAIDS and World Food Programme, to improve operational efficiency, drive growth and deliver impact. She also holds an MSc in Environmental Management and Development from the Australian National University.

Headquartered in one of the first all-electric office buildings in London’s West End and operationally carbon zero from day one, Smart has a rapidly-growing global footprint, managing more than £2.2 billion of members' savings on its platform. In the UK, Smart’s captive master trust, the Smart Pension Master Trust, invests more than 70% of its default growth fund in ESG funds, and plans to take this to 100%.
