Jemma Green received a bachelor of Commerce in Finance at Murdoch University in Perth, before beginning work as an investment banker at J.P. Morgan’s London office in the early 2000’s.
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 setup J.P. Morgan’s Global Environmental and Social Risk Management office.
It was during her work here that she began to realise the full potential for increasing ethics and responsibility in corporate organizations.
During this time, she completed two postgraduate diplomas and a Masters in Sustainability at Cambridge University. Her research centred around corporate credit ratings and environmental risk.
In 2013, Jemma left J.P. Morgan and returned to Australia.
Jemma is now a Research Fellow and PhD candidate at Curtin University. She has a particular interest in sustainable economics, and her doctoral research is focused on renewable energy and storage systems and prefabricated housing.
Jemma has made over 400 appearances as a commentator on finance, transport, energy, carbon and sustainable economics.
