PwC named global adviser on climate change

PwC has been named global adviser to the world’s biggest investor collaboration on climate change

PricewaterhouseCoopers
(PwC) has been awarded the role of global adviser on climate change for the
Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), an alliance of 385 institutional investors
reporting assets of $57tn (£28.7tn).

PwC will be charged with analysing data from more than 3000 companies which
disclose details on their risks and opportunities associated with climate
change, GAAPweb reports.

Tom Craren, PwC brand leader, said carbon emissions increasingly affected
value, risk and long-term growth potential for businesses in virtually every
industry.

‘That awareness is creating opportunities to develop strategic programs that
increase shareholder value, while also driving down carbon emissions,’ he said.
