Dr Jon Day strengthens Chronos Sustainability’s leadership team
Chronos Sustainability, the specialist sustainability advisory firm, is bolstering its senior leadership team with the appointment of Dr. Jon Day as Chief Operating Officer.
His appointment reflects the sustained and continuing growth of Chronos’ business during the past two years. Chronos now has over 40 clients – including institutional investors, corporates, civil society organisations, intergovernmental organisations and industry bodies – and is working on sustainability-related projects and initiatives around the world.
In this newly-created role, Dr. Day will be responsible for overseeing Chronos’ business operations to deliver consultancy and research services to its clients and partners efficiently and securely. The move follows the formalisation of roles of the firm’s co-founders Dr Rory Sullivan and Nicky Amos who become CEO and managing director respectively in December 2019. It also follows the appointment of Amanda Williams as director of communications in September 2019.
Dr Rory Sullivan, CEO, Chronos Sustainability, said: “We’re extremely proud of the team we are building at Chronos. Jon’s appointment will enable us to deliver on our mission of delivering best-in-class, intelligent sustainability solutions to support our clients’ ambitions for delivering genuine change in their sectors.”
Nicky Amos, MD, Chronos Sustainability: “Jon has been a much-valued consultant to Chronos since its inception and indeed a highly respected associate for far longer, having been involved in the Business Benchmark on Farm Animal Welfare and other programmes for a number of years prior. His depth of experience in both a commercial and academic context, combined with his strong systems and operations expertise will be pivotal as we continue to grow our business.”
Chronos provides strategic advice and support to investors, companies, governments and other stakeholders to deliver transformative, systemic change in the social and environmental performance of key industry sectors. It is currently leading or supporting a series of major industry transformation projects including The Transition Pathway Initiative, The Global Coalition for Animal Welfare and The Business Benchmark on Farm Animal Welfare. The firm has also played a principal role in supporting the investment industry’s efforts on climate change adaptation and mitigation through its work with the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC) and other industry bodies, and acts as an adviser to leading global financial institutions on their responsible investment policies, processes and activities.
