Mattel has announced that Pamela Gill-Alabaster is joining Mattel as the head of sustainability.
In her role, Gill-Alabaster will lead the company’s sustainability work and further drive Mattel’s purpose-driven efforts. She will report to Richard Dickson, president and chief operating officer.
“Pam is a seasoned leader with a proven track record for identifying key sustainability priorities, building a sustainability strategy with a design-led and brand purpose-driven perspective and driving cross-functional collaboration and outcomes,” says Dickson. “She will play a key role in driving Mattel’s sustainability journey and we are excited to welcome her to the team.”
In her former roles, Gill-Alabaster drove efforts to minimize environmental impact of companies, enhance social and governance practices, develop and publish sustainability metrics and create long-term sustainability and brand purpose strategies.
Gill-Alabaster has previously led the sustainability work and teams for several Fortune 500 consumer goods companies such as L’Oréal, Estée Lauder Companies and Revlon. Most recently, she worked at Centric Brands who is a licensee for Calvin Klein, Under Armour, Michael Kors and BCBG.
“I look forward to working with Richard, and in collaboration with our internal teams, to continue to advance Mattel’s leadership in sustainability and support the company’s strategic objective to create stakeholder value,” says Gill-Alabaster. “I am thrilled to be part of an organization with a deeply embedded purpose and to have the opportunity to build on Mattel’s pioneering practices and established goals to lead positive environmental and social change.”
Early this year, Mattel launched a collection of sustainability products as part of its continued commitment to achieve 100 percent recycled, recyclable or bio-based plastic materials in their products and packaging by 2030.
