He has experience working with private equity firms as they factor climate into their portfolio strategies.\r\n\r\nThe Big Four firm is upskilling its global network to help clients and stakeholders address their ESG challenges, and is also upskilling its client-facing people around the world. Over 100,000 current employees across PwC firms have already taken part in ESG training.\r\n\r\nJackson-Moore said: \u201cESG 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.\r\n\r\n\u201cThe focus has to 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.\u201d\r\n\r\nPwC has created a number of ESG centres of excellence, including a Sustainability Centre of Excellence in PwC Singapore, as well as centres focused on topics including Hydrogen in PwC Germany, Water in PwC India, Agribusiness in Brazil and Renewable energy in PwC South Africa.
