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.
