Barclays seeks climate director after protests over fossil fuel finance

Barclays has kicked off a search for a director to champion its climate efforts, after a bruising year in which the UK bank was targeted by campaigners over its environmental record. The high street lender recently closed applications for a climate communications director based in London, which is believed to be one of the most senior roles dedicated to coordinating its public response to climate pressures. The director’s responsibilities will include creating a “compelling narrative for climate transition” linked to the bank’s wider strategy, assessing “reputation and media risk” around climate issues, and working with senior stakeholders “to influence the outcome of such issues in a positive way”, according to the job posting. https://www.theguardian.com/business/2023/sep/10/barclays-seeks-climate-director-after-protests-over-fossil-fuel-finance

          Sounds more like a role that should make positive PR, rather than craft a new sustainability strategy for the bank...
