Director of Sustainable Banking, RBS

In her role since 2016, Kirsty has a solid background in sustainability. Prior to her current role, she was Global Director of Citizenship for Barclays, leading the Citizenship strategy and plans for the group which followed a nine year technology stint with mobile giants Telefonica and Nokia.

As head of Social Action for O2, she led the youth programme, Think Big; with a partnership of over 150 youth charities, which was endorsed as a Clinton Global Initiative. This was preceded by heading sustainability marketing for Nokia globally; a period that saw Nokia consistently acclaimed as the tech sector leader in sustainability; eight-times leader in the Greenpeace guide to greener electronics, and as the Dow Jones Sustainability Index leader.

Two small children keep her busy, alongside working as a trustee on a local charity.
