Kaitlyn Law is voted new incoming President of MScSM Student Executive Council (MSEC) for the 2021-2022 academic year. Congratulations Kaitlyn!
Kaitlyn recently joined ESG Global Advisors as an Associate and is also a consultant for the Transition Pathway Initiative (TPI) based at the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). She is currently completing the Master of Science in Sustainability Management (MScSM) program at the University of Toronto, with a collaborative specialization in environmental studies and a science concentration. More broadly, Kaitlyn is interested in the role of the financial sector, technology, energy transformations, and public policy in optimizing conditions for more inclusive growth and creating shared value.
This past summer she was a Senior Intern Analyst with CPP Investments’ Sustainable Investing and Stakeholder Affairs Teams. In this role, she synthesized the implications of internal insights on sustainable investing and ESG integration across multiple investment strategies including active equities, real assets, private equity, capital markets, and factor investing for multiple stakeholders. She also evaluated information on ESG materiality, climate-related financial disclosures, climate change strategies/data tools, proxy voting, and sustainable value creation.
Prior to joining CPP Investments, Kaitlyn worked at a fintech start-up working with decision-makers in the finance sector to measure the carbon impact of corporate activities and effectively deploy capital towards low-carbon solutions. She previously assisted with research on community energy resilience, climate adaptation strategies, and clean energy transitions in post-disaster scenarios in South Asia and East Africa at the Low Carbon Energy for Development Network. Last year, she volunteered as a Partnerships and Outreach Lead for the Climate Investment Challenge which is hosted by Imperial College’s Centre for Climate Finance and Investment.
In her spare time, Kaitlyn enjoys visiting local farmer’s markets, hiking, spending time with her friends and family as well as studying geopolitics. She is also an avid scuba diver and a licensed PADI rescue diver.
