Singapore’s OCBC has announced the appointment of a newly created role of chief sustainability officer.

According to a statement, OCBC appoints Mike Ng as chief sustainability officer (CSO), effective August 1. Ng will build on and accelerate the bank’s sustainability efforts in the newly created role.

He will also actively lead efforts to support clients’ transitions and deliver related products and services.

Ng joined OCBC in 2010 as head of structured & project finance before taking on an expanded role to drive sustainable finance solutions offerings amongst large corporates in 2015. In June 2022, he assumed the role of head of sustainability office, global wholesale banking.

"This new role requires an individual to have a strong sense of business acumen and deep expertise not just in sustainability and climate change but also in financial products and services," said OCBC group CEO Helen Wong. "Ng is thus a natural fit. He is highly regarded as a sustainable finance veteran with an innovative and forward-looking mind."
