Shell has announced the appointment of former IIASA Deputy Director General for Science, Leena Srivastava, to its Board as Non-Executive Director effective from 13 March 2023.
In this role Srivastava will join the Safety, Environment, and Sustainability Committee of Shell. As a leading global authority on climate science, her experience in energy, environment, and climate change policy, as well as her expertise in sustainable development, will strengthen the company’s energy transition efforts.
“We congratulate Leena on this important appointment. Over the course of her career, she has provided valuable insights on enabling inclusive and just energy transitions at important fora such as the Vienna Energy Forum and the UN Ministerial-level Thematic Forums to mobilize transformational energy actions ahead of the High-level UN Dialogue on Energy. We believe that her wealth of experience will be invaluable to Shell in their transition efforts. We wish her all the best in this new challenge,” said IIASA Director General Albert van Jaarsveld.
