Tiffany & Co. has appointed Anisa Costa to the newly created position of chief sustainability officer.
Costa previously served as Tiffany’s vice president, global sustainability and corporate responsibility. She will retain her position as chairman and president of the Tiffany & Co. Foundation.
“Appointing [Anisa] to this new position underscores the strategic importance of the corporate social responsibility program to the Tiffany brand,” said CEO Frederic Cumenal in a statement.
A Tiffany release credited Costa for her “collaborative and stakeholder-driven approach to sustainability that includes engaging with civil society, mining companies, the luxury industry, and local communities to shape best practices across the sector.” She also helped develop a CSR metrics program and increase public awareness about issues surrounding the proposed Pebble gold mine in Bristol Bay, Alaska, the company said.
