How Rob is building a better working world

"Whilst we have seen businesses of all sizes sign up to net zero targets, new requirements announced at COP26 for UK listed companies to publish their net zero plans by 2023 signal a significant shift. Businesses will need to move from purpose statements and climate pledges to developing detailed transition plans. Inaction is simply not an option for those that want to succeed.

I’m proud to lead our UK team of sustainability professionals who are helping clients at every stage of their sustainability challenges, including transforming to net zero."
