CRU appoints head of its sustainability division

CRU has announced the appointment of Mark Jeavons as head of its sustainability division – CRU Sustainability. Mark, who is based out of London, UK, will have a global remit, using his wealth of expertise to support new and existing customers in their journey to a greener future with the development of sustainability strategies across a multitude of industries.

Mark has over 15 years’ experience in a variety of leadership roles spanning ESG and investment. Most recently, as Head of Climate Change Insights at Aon (a leading multinational financial services firm) he developed a market-leading climate change scenarios toolkit and led ESG investment research, driving growth in the responsible investment business globally.

In his new role, Mark will spearhead CRU Sustainability’s growth, working closely with a team of highly regarded CRU analysts, pricing experts and consultants, to provide guidance on macro challenges such as carbon emission reductions and circular economy, alongside commodity-specific demand trends and regulations. This will provide the much-needed holistic picture of market impact drivers and insights to accelerate customers’ roadmap to net zero – arguably the most pressing issue faced by many business decision makers today.

David Trafford, Chief Executive Officer at CRU comments:

“Mark brings a wealth of knowledge of sustainability and investment themes which is the perfect fit for CRU Sustainability as we look to consolidate our position as market-leading experts in the transition to a low-carbon world. New and existing customers alike will benefit from Mark’s experience, and we are excited to welcome him to the team.”

Mark Jeavons, Head of Sustainability at CRU comments:

“This is a fantastic opportunity to use my sustainability experience to drive forward a significant business offering and bring CRU’s expertise to a new component of operation for its clients. I look forward to getting to work and supporting customers to get the insights they need to support their strategic decision making
