Irvine-based electric vehicle maker Rivian has hired Anisa Kamadoli Costa as its first chief sustainability officer.
She will be responsible for the company’s sustainability measures with a focus on climate and environment and help lead Forever, Rivian’s philanthropic arm.
Rivian, producer of the world’s first electric truck, aims to achieve carbon neutrality in its own operations by 2028.
Costa will oversee accounting of carbon emissions and other sustainability metrics that can be used to make decisions company-wide, including vehicle design and how the company sources its materials.
Costa most recently served as chief sustainability officer at Tiffany & Co. During her time there, Tiffany was ranked No. 4 on Barron’s list of most sustainable companies in 2020.
