Victoria Shapovalova

Victoria dedicated her career to advancing ESG agenda – before it became a buzz word. In her role as a climate and sustainability consultant with Deloitte, Victoria helps organisations to define their ESG ambition and strategy, implement it from the ground up, and future-proof their business. Victoria has helped clients tackle a range of ESG issues: defining net-zero aspiration and roadmap, decarbonising supply chains, modelling the financial impact of climate risks on an investment portfolio, and implementing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion strategy, to mention a few.

Engineer by training, Victoria transitioned into sustainability after a stint as a risk consultant for the oil & gas sector where she learned about the impact of carbon-intensive industries on the world climate and decided to dedicate her career to helping businesses do better. Having worked as an ESG ratings analyst, Victoria evaluated hundreds of companies on the implementation of ESG (or lack of thereof) and developed a birds-eye view of the state of sustainability across industries, globally and in the region.
