Effective April 18, 2022, Anisa Kamadoli will be responsible for the company’s sustainability strategy for both the business and its products at Rivian.

She will also be responsible for leading Forever, the foundation that Rivian formed during its initial public offering.

“At Rivian, Anisa will be responsible for the company’s overall sustainability roadmap with a focus on climate and environment. She will oversee accounting of carbon emissions and other sustainability metrics, enabling data to be embedded into operations to inform decisions company-wide, including those about product design, manufacturing, energy and charging infrastructure, materials sourcing, responsible mining, and aggressive waste management,” the company said in a statement.

Anisa will report directly to Rivian’s Chief Executive Officer, RJ Scaringe, as the company’s first Chief Sustainability Officer.

“We could not be more thrilled to welcome Anisa to our leadership team,” says Rivian Chief Executive Officer RJ Scaringe. “Across the organization, she will help us integrate environmental and social impact into our decisions. The sustainability strategies we set today will have lasting influence on our company and our world, and Anisa’s mindset positions her extremely well to lead and drive these critical activities.”
