Sustainability and Climate Change has moved solidly onto the CEO/C-suite agenda and governing bodies, including the current administration, creating the opportunity to link it with core business strategy through cost reduction, revenue enhancement and preparing for compliance with new regulations. In many industries, risks and opportunities associated with climate change and other environmental and social issues are significant and, in some cases, material. A systematic approach to identifying and analyzing risks and opportunities, developing strategies to capture the associated value, and implementing those strategies with good business processes can create measurable financial value. PwC is uniquely positioned to take advantage due to its extensive global cross Line of Service network and deep subject matter knowledge in key sustainable business solution areas.
