Will Jackson-Moore (pictured) has been appointed global ESG Leader at PwC amid ambitious plans to expand its ESG services to clients.
The professional services group said it plans to grow ESG revenues 10-fold over the next four years as it continues its roll out of ‘The New Equation’ – a strategy to help clients build trust and deliver sustained outcomes.
Jackson-Moore steps as global ESG leader after leading the groups global private equity and sovereign investment funds arms and the group said in a statement his experience working with private equity firms as they factor climate into their portfolio strategies will bring a focus on delivery that he expects to be a hallmark of PwC’s approach to helping clients.
He said: “ESG is the defining business issue. Our global footprint gives us the opportunity – and responsibility – to help answer the challenge at scale. Every aspect is important, but right now the urgent need is to move beyond strategy and deliver the practical steps needed to tackle climate change. The focus must be on net-zero transformation of businesses and their supply chains, mobilising sustainable capital, enhancing resilience against climate risks and delivering robust reporting on progress.
“I am excited about helping our people create value by delivering sustained outcomes for our clients and stakeholders.”
PwC highlighted over 100,000 employees have already taken part in ESG training.
