Asheen A. Phansey

Director, Sustainability

Asheen has over a decade of corporate sustainability experience, specializing in sustainability strategy and change management in large enterprises. From 2010–2017, Asheen led sustainability efforts for the $3B French software developer Dassault Systèmes, which in 2018 was named the #1 on the Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations list by Corporate Knights. Since 2017, Asheen has consulted for several companies in corporate sustainability, ranging from high-tech to the financial sector.

Asheen serves on the Board of Directors of Net Impact and on the Advisory Council for the Power Shift Network, both of which empower young people to drive sustainable change. He also serves as the Board Treasurer for the Environmental League of Massachusetts (ELM) Action Fund, where he is involved in business-friendly political advocacy. He is an active proponent of carbon pricing, having testified on behalf of the business community at a carbon legislation hearing at the Massachusetts State House.

Prior to sustainability, his professional experience spans the software, aerospace, and biotech sectors, including working in early-stage startups in molecular pharmacological research and synthetic nanobiomaterials manufacture, and conducting tech commercialization for unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) technologies. Asheen holds a bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering from Cornell University and an MBA from Babson College, and frequently lectures at Babson and other universities. He enjoys learning new languages, philosophizing over espresso, and running (slowly and infrequently).
