The appointment of Emily Farnworth as a Global Director for Climate Change and Low Carbon Economy Transition (LCET) has further strengthened ERM’s capabilities in an area that is becoming business critical for most companies.

Climate Change and LCET is seeing business investing millions of dollars into the actions required to transition to a lower carbon economy, and they are looking to ERM to help them navigate the complexities of achieving this.

Immediately prior to joining ERM, Emily has spent the last three years leading the World Economic Forum’s climate program. Before that, she worked for the Climate Group as well as running her own consulting business.

Commenting on the significance of this appointment, Matt Haddon - Global Service Lead for Corporate Sustainability and Climate Change at ERM, said:

“Investor, regulator and customer pressures are driving companies to invest billions of dollars into the actions required to transition to a lower carbon economy. As we expand our leadership position in this space, strategic hires such as Emily will help to ensure we have the capabilities to support our clients through the complete life cycle of the challenges this presents. Emily’s appointment enhances the wealth of skills and experience we already have in this area and reflects the journey we are on in helping the world’s leading organizations navigate their way towards a more sustainable future for everyone.”
