Will is Deloitte’s Asia-Pacific Climate & Sustainability Leader and has over 20 years’ international experience supporting organisations to respond to climate change. He has worked extensively across all infrastructure classes, led national-level climate risk assessments, delivered innovative adaptation strategies, developed urban resilience strategies for cities across Asia and advised government agencies on how to align regulatory arrangements to drive more effective climate risk management.

Will has also led sustainability and carbon management services for infrastructure projects with an aggregate capital value of over $15 billion, is an experienced facilitator and trainer and co-developed the Great Barrier Reef Foundation’s ‘Resilience Reefs’ initiative.

For Will, the need for organisations to rapidly accelerate action to decarbonise their business models and actively address climate risks is clear. The opportunities associated with this transformation agenda are enormous, but to capture value organisations need to move quickly, consider all aspects of their business, build new partnerships across their value chains and transparently engage with their stakeholders.

Leading a group of climate and sustainability practitioners across the region, Will’s role is to bring the best of Deloitte to help our clients solve their complex problems, manage uncertainty and respond to rapid change.
