The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) has announced the formation of a new sustainability group and the appointment of Dr Darian McBain as chief sustainability officer, with effect from October 1.

The new sustainability group helmed by McBain will steer sustainability efforts across MAS and help the organisation build deeper capabilities in this area.

The new group will coordinate MAS’ green finance and sustainability agenda. This includes strengthening the financial sector’s resilience against environmental risks; developing a vibrant green finance ecosystem to support Asia’s transition to a low-carbon future; identifying strategic green finance collaborations with regional and international counterparts; and reducing MAS’ own carbon and environmental footprint.
