S&P Global Ratings adds climate adaptation and resilience expert to sustainable finance team; covered by specialist press

April 20, 2020

S&P Global Ratings has appointed Paul Munday as Associate Director, Climate Adaptation & Resilience Specialist, to its Sustainable Finance team. Joining S&P Global Ratings from WSP UK, Munday has over a decade of experience working in climate adaptation and resilience in both the public and private sector, in the UK and abroad.

Munday will be based in London and report directly to Michael Wilkins, Global Head of Sustainable Finance, Analytics & Research.

“We are delighted to welcome Paul to our Sustainable Finance team”, says Wilkins. “Despite their ever-increasing importance, climate adaptation and resilience projects are vastly underfunded on a global scale – largely due to the difficulties of quantifying the return on investment for projects that may only prove their true value at an unknown point in the future. Paul brings a wealth of expertise in this area that will benefit our team and, in turn, help investors, companies, governments to better protect our societies against the impacts of climate change.”

Following outreach by Moorgate, Munday’s appointment was covered by Environment Analyst, TXF, ImpactAlpha here and here, IPE, and Environmental Finance.
