Speaking and acting on behalf of the earth and our company, Ambassadors bring sustainability to life at the local level.
A critical component of BNY Mellon’s sustainability initiatives is our network of about 300 Business and Environmental Sustainability Ambassadors. Day in and day out, these enthusiastic advocates engage their fellow employees in our sustainability strategy. In ways small and large, they emphasize the importance of taking an eco-friendly approach in our work and daily life.
This veritable army of volunteers in 33 cities as they champion BNY Mellon’s global environmental sustainability values, goals and strategies. In their own words, four of these dedicated volunteers describe how their role enables them to transform our business and our world for the better.
A platform to engage - Nick Ghezzi, Custody Client Services, Central New York. “We each play an important role in making the environment a priority. We all live on one planet, and future generations should be proud of how we maintain the Earth.”
A platform to learn - Rajesh Ananth, Wealth Management Team Lead, Pune, India. “I am learning more about sustainable practices such as BNY Mellon India’s distribution of efficient biomass cookstoves in parts of rural India, which enable households to reduce health risks, fuel costs and environmental degradation.”
A platform for impact - Natalia Adamczewska, Data Management & Quantitative Analysis Team Manager, Wroclaw, Poland. “I’m able to influence and inspire others, to have a real, lasting impact on my workplace environment. I serve as a voice to help people combine their efforts to achieve environmental and sustainability goals.”
A platform for personal growth - Lorena Braun, Resiliency, Strategy and Control, Manchester, UK. “Being an Ambassador has opened my eyes to environmental issues I hadn’t previously thought about, such as sustainable options for single-serve sachets in the office. It’s prompted me to look critically at my own choices and helped me make more environmentally conscious choices outside of work.”
