The imperative is clear for Deloitte and Marc strongly voices the need for organizations to act on Climate. “Today, it’s no longer relevant to just speak of a Climate Emergency, we have to talk of a Business Emergency as companies all around the world are already facing increasing challenges.” Furthermore, organizations in multiple industries are experiencing, “exponential pressure for change between consumer consciousness and activism, changing regulations, the need for improved operational resiliency, and meeting climate commitments”. Today’s climate crisis urges us to rethink and reinvent our economy. Business needs to transform to meet higher expectations and Deloitte, with Marc’s leadership, is well-equipped to guide organizations through this transition.
With Climate & Sustainability, Marc wants to focus on helping organizations along their transformation journey from strategy to execution to assurance. He believes that “as a Sustainability community, we have the opportunity to make a generational impact with our clients as we guide them to a more sustainable future.”
Heading a group of leaders from across the Deloitte network, Marc’s role will be to drive continued elevation of our services among all businesses and geographies in order for Deloitte to enable clients to achieve a more sustainable and successful future.
