Susan McGeachie

Global Director, Climate Change and Sustainability Services, Hatch

Susan leads Hatch’s global climate change and sustainability community of practice which is focused on two streams of business. The first is supporting Hatch’s clients in strategies to maximize the positive social and environmental impacts of projects and other activities, including climate change mitigation through the reduction of GHG emissions.

The second is resilience, which seeks to address the impact of a changing business environment, including climate change-related factors, on projects by helping Hatch’s clients adapt to regulatory risks, shifting societal expectations and changing weather patterns, and develop new ideas that ensure they are building infrastructure and designing projects with climate change and other environmental and social considerations in mind.

Susan is an adjunct professor with the University of Toronto where she co-teaches a graduate course in environmental finance and sustainable investing, and is a fellow of U of T’s Centre for Environment. She is a former director of the Social Investment Organisation, for which she co-chaired the Mainstream committee and chaired the Governance committee. She holds an MBA from the Schulich School of Business in Toronto in international business and finance.
