Xenith Group is excited to announce that Mr Luis Filardi Carneiro has joined us as inaugural General Manager ESG (Environmental, Social & Governance).

Over a 20 year plus career, Luis has held senior leadership positions including with General Motors and more recently Lloyd’s Register Group.

In his most recent role with Lloyd’s, Luis was the Business Development Manager and ESG Lead for Australasia. 

He has also headed the Climate Change and Sustainability practice in Lloyd’s for over 8 years, leading engineering project teams across several supply chains in different countries using his fluency in Portuguese and Spanish language to build his network.

Luis is peer acknowledged by his various industry thought leadership roles and his regular speaking engagements in Australia and overseas. 

Luis said, “It’s a fantastic time to join Xenith and to be able to support our customer base on the ESG activities that truly enhance benefits to society. The Xenith Group of companies – Xenith Consulting, Spinifex and JBA are highly regarded in their technical excellence and client value reputation built over the past 16 years, which has given me a wonderful starting point to build up our ESG advisory and to follow it through to be successfully implemented with our clients”.

Xenith Group Managing Director Troy Turner welcomed Luis to the company at the recent Xenith Way conference and said “It is fantastic for our clients, Luis’ new colleagues and the Xenith Group that we have been able to attract an internationally respected ESG professional of Luis’s standing to join the Group. With Luis’ skills and experience in strategy, governance structuring and application, optimising systems and ESG assurance, to reference but a few examples, we are looking forward to strengthening and expanding the range and depth of advice we can give to our industry partners in a special way”.

Mr Turner went on to say that “Luis’s arrival coincides with Xenith’s initiatives to reinforce its own corporate ESG values and practices, in tandem with our advice to clients in managing the entire life cycle of their asset portfolio to achieve outcomes consistent with private and public expectations”.
