Mastercard has hired Ellen Jackowski as the company’s new chief sustainability officer, starting immediately.
In her new role, Jackowski will be expected to “further integrate” Mastercard’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategy into the organisation.
Mastercard claims to have established its ESG efforts over a decade ago “with a focus on financial inclusion, inclusive growth and data responsibility”.
Jackowski joins Mastercard from HP, where she was the chief impact officer and head of sustainable impact. There, she worked on developing and delivering a range of programmes on climate action, human rights and digital equity. Earlier in her career, Jackowski served in several management and consulting roles.
“I’m a big believer that actions carry much more weight than words,” says Jackowski, adding the company “has shown over the past several years just how seriously it takes its commitments”.
Jackowski currently serves on the advisory board of the Ocean Plastics Leadership Network, is a deputy advisor on the World Economic Forum’s Champions for Nature community and has served as a faculty member of The Prince of Wales’s Business and Sustainability Programme at the University of Cambridge.
