Yafit Cohn

Vice President, Chief Sustainability Officer and Group General Counsel at The Travelers Companies, Inc.

As Travelers' Chief Sustainability Officer, I am focused on developing the company's environmental, social and governance (ESG) engagement and communications strategies, as well as executing on broader, strategic company initiatives. Since joining Travelers, I've helped guide the company through the evolving ESG landscape and have led the company's effort to produce its first (and subsequent) comprehensive and integrated sustainability reports, including reports aligned with the SASB standards for the insurance industry and the recommendations of the TCFD. I chair Travelers' ESG Committee, serve on the company's Disclosure Committee and am the first Chair of the Society for Corporate Governance's Sustainability Practices Committee. Before joining Travelers, I was Counsel in Simpson Thacher's New York office and a member of the Public Company Advisory Practice, where I advised public companies and their management teams and boards on a broad array of issues pertaining to securities law and corporate governance, including SEC reporting and disclosure requirements, shareholder proposals, the impact of proxy advisory firms, and responses to formal and informal SEC inquiries. Prior to that, I spent nine years as a litigator at Cahill Gordon & Reindel, focusing primarily on securities litigation and government investigations. I have been a prolific writer and speaker on disclosure and corporate governance matters, as well as a frequent commenter in the press.
