ClientEarth is a remarkable organisation and I am honoured to chair its board. Now, more than ever, the world needs a group like ClientEarth. Their energy, courage and innovation provides hope for all of us. I know from my time as a trustee that ClientEarth is fortunate to have such a strong team powering its work.

Howard Covington

Howard Covington has served on the ClientEarth Board since 2014 and became Chair in December 2018.

He brings a wealth of experience in the worlds of business and philanthropy. He combines this with a passion for science and a deep understanding of climate change, a topic he has written on for the Wall Street Journal, the Financial Times, Nature GeoScience and Nature.

Howard was formerly an investment banker and a founding shareholder and chief executive of New Star Asset Management. He has been the Chair of the Management Committee of the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences and a Trustee of the Science Museum. He is the founding Chair of The Alan Turing Institute.
