Jemma Green's Biography

Jemma Green was born in Perth and raised in the eastern hills. She received a bachelor of Commerce in Finance at Murdoch University in Perth, before beginning work as in investment banker at J.P.Morgan’s London office in the early 2000s. Around this time, banks were realising the need for a greater focus on corporate social responsibility in business and began recruiting young professionals with fresh minds to assist with the transition.  Jemma was one such employee, and she was chosen to help set up J.P.Morgan’s Global Environment and Social Risk Management Office.

 

It was during her work at J.P. Morgan that she began to realise the full potential for increasing ethics and responsibility in corporate organisations.  During this time, she completed two postgraduate diplomas and a Masters in Sustainability at Cambridge University, UK.  Her research centred around corporate credit ratings and environmental risk.  In 2013, Jemma left J.P. Morgan to return to Western Australia to set up The Green Enterprise.

 

Jemma is also a Research Fellow and PhD candidate at Curtin University, Perth, is on the advisory board of Carbon Tracker and a founding board member of Future Super, Australia’s first fossil fuel free superannuation fund. She has a particular interest in sustainable finance and economics, and her doctoral research focuses on sustainable cities looking a renewable energy and battery storage systems as well as modular construction.

Finance, sustainable finance:  The financial sector is undergoing a very big shift. Trust and reputation in financial services companies is low. The global financial crisis and the mortgage backed security bubble saw unimaginable impacts which still have consequences some eight years on. Sectors and economies of the 21st century are looking to innovative business models and ways of financing commercial activity. The green bond market is growing rapidly and is expected to reach $100bn during 2015.  Credit rating agencies are beginning to take account of a wide range of sustainability factors in determining the credit standing of companies and countries.

 

Crowd sourcing funding models are being established and new business models are emerging such as the sharing economy. In aggregate, what does this all mean and how could business look as a result in 10 or more years from now.

 

Low cost and low carbon housing:  Affordable housing and low-carbon housing are actually highly compatible. What are the challenges and how can it be mainstreamed?

 

Transport, transport systems, public transport, heavy rail, light rail, buses, cycling, pedestrians and roads:  How does transport systems influence the type of city you end up with?  Do certain types of transport produce different cultural impacts in a city?  How can it impact innovation and productivity?

 

Sustainable cities: competitive cities, liveable cities, efficient cities: Sustainable cities is actually not just a fluffy term. Cities that make themselves more liveable and sustainable attract the best jobs and top talent and become more competitive and successful in the process.
