KPMG UK has promoted Bridget Beals to Partner as it looks to strengthen and grow its Climate Risk and Decarbonisation expertise.

Beals, who currently co-heads the Climate Risk and Decarbonisation Strategy team with fellow partner Simon Weaver, will help to drive the firm’s 2021 growth strategy in the climate resilience space.

The team helps some of the world’s biggest brands to understand the nature and scale of the risks and opportunities their business faces from climate change, focusing on embedding a strategic, transformative response at the heart of their future growth agenda.

With more than 20 specialists on the team, working alongside KPMG UK’s ESG and Energy & Natural Resources functions, KPMG UK some of the industry’s most dynamic, innovative levels of expertise and insight on issues that are transforming the corporate world.

Commenting on her promotion, Bridget Beals, said:

“My move into the partnership at KPMG UK comes at an incredible time for me and the wider Climate Risk and Decarbonisation Strategy team. We’ve never been busier.  With COP26 back on the cards for 2021 and an increasing political and public focus on climate, businesses are starting to understand that this goes way beyond a simple sustainability consideration.

“Climate change creates profound risk and opportunities for businesses and it needs to be high on board room agendas. Recognising the threat and understanding the impact on your business is the first step, but it must be followed by a clear strategy, backed up with analysis and strong scenario planning. Understandably, for many businesses in industries that haven’t thought about climate risk until now, the prospect of taking on such a profound project can be daunting. To meet the regulations, it’s essential that CEOs seek out expert advice and support and take a proactive approach today.”
