Jane Madden

Global Managing Partner of Sustainability and Social Impact

Professional Experience

I’ve advised Fortune 500 companies across a variety of industries including tech, finance, CPG and the extractives on sustainability strategy, disclosure and communications. Most recently, I led the U.S. Corporate Responsibility & Sustainability Practice Burson-Marsteller. Previously, I was the Sustainability Practice Leader at Environmental Resources Management (ERM) and launched the Chicago CSR & Sustainability practice at Edelman Chicago.

Sustainability is just good business.

How'd you get here?

I’ve been working in the sustainability space since the beginning of my career. First at CARE, the humanitarian NGO, then the World Bank where I advised governments on environmental social and governance (ESG) policies, stakeholder engagement and public-private partnerships for over a decade. Those experiences, whether it was stakeholder engagement with the Taliban, building capacity in Ministries of Finance and Economics or developing a network of local women’s NGO’s, gave me the skills and expertise to tackle ESG performance in corporations. Our Sustainability & Social Impact practice not only tells our clients stories, but we help shape and transform business to improve both financial and societal impact.
