Kevin Moss is the Global Director of WRI’s Center for Sustainable Business (CSB). In this capacity, he leads the Institute’s private sector strategy, guides CSB’s research and engagement and oversees WRI’s business-oriented initiatives: the Corporate Consultative Group (CCG), the Platform for Accelerating the Circular Economy (PACE), Partnering for Green Growth and Global Goals 2030 (P4G) and the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). Since joining WRI in 2015, Kevin has been instrumental in expanding the scope and impact of the Center, growing the annual budget almost ten-fold and increasing staffing from 7 to 40. He also added two critical workstreams, trade associations and consumption, to the Center’s portfolio– both historically overlooked areas of focus in corporate sustainability practice.

Kevin’s 20+ years in the corporate world make him uniquely positioned to advise companies throughout their sustainability journey. Prior to joining WRI, Kevin worked at multinational firm, British Telecommunications (BT), where he served as the founder and Head of the Net Good Program, an initiative to create new frameworks that showed how organizations can embrace the power of sustainability as a business opportunity. He has also held commercial roles at MCI Global and BP.

Kevin’s private sector experience has directly contributed to his priority areas: 1) identify and catalyze the change needed for businesses to operate within the limits of Earth’s natural systems and 2) encourage businesses to advocate for climate change action through their brand and policy voice. Kevin is committed to accelerating sustainability within the private sector and applies his expertise beyond WRI as a founder and advisor on several leading-edge corporate sustainability initiatives. Kevin helped establish the Science Based Targets Network (SBTN) and has chaired its Leadership Council since 2019. He has served as a member of the Advisory Board of Sustainable Brands, a member of HP’s External Global Citizenship Advisory board and a member of the Corporate Responsibility Officers Association’s (CROA) Board of Governors– founding and chairing the CROA’s Committee for Professional Development during his tenure.

Kevin was also the founding chairperson of the Energy and Environment Committee of the British American Business Association in Washington DC and serves as the Chair of the Corporate Consultative Group Advisory Board. In 2013, he was included in the 2013 Trust Across America Top 100 Thought Leaders and Guardian Sustainable Business 30 Most Influential Sustainability Voices in America. He was a recipient of the 2009 PR News: CSR Executive of the Year Award.

Kevin holds a BEng honors degree in Mechanical Engineering and Management from Liverpool University.

Originally from London, Kevin has been living in the Washington, DC metro area since the mid 1990s. When not working, he enjoys spending time outdoors and has a passion for music, movies, antiquarian books and vintage mechanical devices. He is married and the father of two wonderful daughters.
