PwC has announced it has agreed a strategic partnership with the London Resort.

PwC will support in defining the technology masterplan for the resort, which it said is “focused on delivering a world-class physical and virtual entertainment experience for visitors”.

The Resort said it has “committed to a transformational approach to diversity, inclusion and equality”; formal commitments include exceeding the Government’s objective of £1 in every £3 being spent with an SME; to become a disability confident employer and working with schools, colleges and universities to develop pre-employment support schemes.

As part of the London Resort proposals, it has committed to invest £150m on remediation, habitat enhancement and providing around 8 miles of footpaths and public rights of way and will deliver a net-gain in biodiversity.

PY Gerbeau, CEO of the London Resort, said: “To be the first theme park across Europe to be built from scratch in nearly 30 years, we need to work with the best and they don’t come much bigger or better than PwC and we are delighted to welcome them as a partner invested in supporting this project.

“Our firm commitment to ESG principles, our strategy to make a serious contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals alongside a determination to deliver meaningful change are a clear fit with PwC’s purpose. Our determination to deliver on sustainability, commitment to deliver on Carbon Zero aspirations and improving the fabric of society by operating as good corporate citizens are values we share with PwC.”

Marco Amitrano, head of clients and markets at PwC UK, added: “Obviously this is a significant project for London and the UK, and closely aligned with our own purpose at PwC, generating significant employment, regeneration and economic benefits.

“Likewise, its vision for next generation entertainment is an exciting proposition – particularly at a time when changes to how we live and work, infrastructure spending, and sustainability initiatives are fuelling remarkable developments in technology. We’re proud to bring our expertise and imagination to help build this cutting edge tech into the fabric of the London Resort experience alongside our global ecosystem of technology partners.”
