Tandem appoints James Streeter as new Head of ESG
By Gloria Methri
Tandem, the UK’s green digital bank, has appointed James Streeter as Head of ESG, supporting its drive to keep sustainability at the core of Tandem.
In this newly created role, Streeter will set the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) strategy for Tandem; taking responsibility for the bank’s policies, compliance, and targets, while ensuring integration of ESG across Tandem’s products and propositions.
Streeter brings over 25 years of experience to Tandem, having worked in sustainability his entire career. This has included senior sustainability roles in German food and beverage flavouring producer, Symrise, and global energy firms, including BG Group, Hess Corporation, and Blue International Group, as well as running his own consultancy, Viridian Advisory.
Streeter also chairs the Sustainable Wine Roundtable and sits on the Board of Trustees for InterClimate Network, inspiring the next generation of climate change leaders.
Commenting on his appointment, Streeter, said, “ESG is rapidly working its way into the very fabric of companies particularly in financial services, with banks being driven by compliance and the constantly evolving regulatory environment.
“Tandem is going further than that. Tandem’s already done some great work on developing an ESG framework around Products, People, and Planet. It’s had some good results, but there’s more to do. After working with Tandem recently in a consultancy capacity, I’m excited to join the team and take on this newly created role.”
Tandem CEO, Alex Mollart, said, “James is a renowned expert in sustainability. We have been working with him as a consultant to develop our first-ever ESG Report, and I’m delighted we’ve been able to convince him to join Tandem’s greener journey.
“He’s one of the first to have an entire career in sustainability and I am delighted we can bring that wealth of expertise into the team. Being green and responsible is at the heart of our business. James will play a crucial role in helping us maintain that while also building out other exciting commitments and steps towards helping our customers have a greener lifestyle.”
Streeter will be based in Tandem’s new London office, with intentions to build out a wider ESG team to support activities in due course.
Benefiting customers’ pockets and the planet, Tandem offers greener ways to save, borrow, spend, and share. From low-emission motor loans to lending for greener home improvements, to EPC discount mortgages and green savings, its products make it easier for more people to choose a greener lifestyle – helping save money, whilst reducing carbon footprints.
