EY has appointed Dr. Matthew Bell as Global Leader of its Climate Change and Sustainability Services (CCaSS) team. This announcement comes as EY continues to strengthen its efforts to help businesses around the world manage risks and opportunities related to climate change and sustainability.
Bell has been helping businesses build their climate change and sustainability credentials for more than 20 years and has worked in the public and private sectors. He’s been at EY for 14 years. Ball has a Ph.D. in biotechnology.
In his new role, Bell will lead teams around the globe in helping companies better understand risks and opportunities centered around climate change and sustainability issues. The team was established 20 years ago and serves businesses in more than 150 countries.
“Climate change and sustainability are among the most vital issues of our time and, over more than two decades, the EY organization has built an incredibly strong reputation, advising businesses across the globe, on a whole host of related risks and opportunities,” Marie-Laure Delarue, EY Global Vice Chair – Assurance, said in a statement. “Matthew has been an integral part of this work from the outset and I know that, under his leadership, CCaSS teams will help EY clients position themselves to manage the many challenges ahead.”
In a statement, Bell said climate change and sustainability are “much more widely recognized as crucial C-suite priorities.”
“As I look ahead, I want to help ensure all EY clients have the support they need to achieve their sustainability goals,” he said.
