Personal Profile

Dr Aled Jones FRSA is the inaugural Director of the Global Sustainability Institute (GSI) at Anglia Ruskin University. Dr Jones also chairs a working group on climate finance within the Capital Markets Climate Initiative on behalf of Greg Barker, the Minister for Climate Change in the UK Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC). He regularly presents on climate change issues to corporates and governments and sits on the UNEP FI insurance sector working group.

Dr Jones was previously the Deputy Director at the University of Cambridge Programme for Sustainability Leadership and was Director of the Climate Leadership Programme and Chevening Economics of Climate Change Programme (for the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office). He was a founding member of the ClimateWise insurance principles, was facilitator for the P8 Pensions Group, 12 of the world's largest public pension funds working collaboratively to address the problem of climate change and investments and set up the Banking & Environment Initiative. His work with the P8 Group has been recognised by the State of California.

Prior to this he was a senior consultant at The Generics Group, worked in a high tech start up, was a Fellow of Mathematics at King's College, Cambridge and has a PhD in Cosmology from the University of Cambridge.
