Tracey holds a BA LLB from UCT and an LLM from New York University. She is admitted as an attorney in South Africa and as a solicitor in England & Wales. Tracey practised as a litigation attorney in London prior to joining the Cape Town-based Centre for Environmental Rights in 2013, where she ran the Centre’s Corporate Accountability and Transparency Programme, raising investor awareness of environmental risks, and advocating for improved transparency and accountability around the impacts of polluting companies on our environment and people.
Just Share has commissioned and released a legal opinion on the question of whether the boards of pension or provident funds are required under South African law to take into account climate-related risks and opportunities when making investment decisions on behalf of their funds. Just Share also drafted and supported South Africa’s first shareholder proposed resolution on climate risk, which was tabled at Standard Bank’s AGM on 30 May 2019.
