The local Australian network of a global sustainability initiative has added a former BlackRock managing director to its board. Pru Bennett has become a director of the Australian arm of the UN Global Compact. She currently works as an independent consultant advising Australian corporations on stakeholder management and communication as well as ESG strategies.

“There has probably never been a more challenging time for corporations to manage the interests of stakeholders, while also ensuring the long-term sustainability of their businesses,” Ms Bennett said. “The GCNA (Global Compact Network Australia) has a vital role to play in guiding business through this very difficult time and I look forward to working with the board to ensure that sustainability issues remain a key consideration as companies negotiate the new social and economic landscape.” Until January last year, Ms Bennett was managing director at BlackRock and head of the group’s investment stewardship team for the APAC region.
