PricewaterhouseCoopers UK (PwC) has appointed
Bridget Jackson as director of corporate sustainability. She will
lead the firm’s internal environmental, community and corporate
sustainability strategy.

Jackson has an MSc in environment and climate
change and has worked in international business and strategy
consulting for more than ten years.

“PwC has a great track record in corporate
sustainability, and I will be looking to help the firm take these
sustainability achievements to the next level, by setting the bar
higher for the sector and demonstrating the broad business and
personal rewards of sustainability investments,” she said.

Between 2008 and 2009, 4,600 PwC employees
across the UK donated the equivalent of 23 working years to
national and regional activities focused on education,
employability and the environment. The firm’s total community
contribution amounted to £7.9m ($12.2m) in that period.

PwC recently launched a dedicated corporate
sustainability site to share the firm’s strategy, targets and
performance with employees and other stakeholders.
