Global Head of Sustainability
In 2021, Prajna Khanna joined Naspers Prosus to build and lead the Sustainability Department for the group and its companies. As a global consumer internet group and one of the largest technology investors in the world, Naspers Prosus take this responsibility seriously by embedding sustainability criteria not only through its capital allocation choices, but also in the operations of the group. Prajna’s education and early career was in the field of media and mass communications. She applied this expertise to the non-for-profit sector working in the field to support advocacy and scale up of solutions for environmental and social interventions. With an eye on the role that business can play in addressing shared global challenges, Prajna joined the Sustainability team at ING Bank and subsequently accepted the role of Head of CSR - Philips Lighting and Director of Philips Lighting Foundation. Like Naspers-Prosus, Prajna’s roots lie in an emerging market, India, while she has built a life, with a Dutch husband and her two children in the Netherlands.
