15 October 2020 — Daniela GHETU
Willis Towers Watson, a leading global advisory, broking and solutions company, announced the appointment of Tony ROOKE as Director of Climate Transition Risk in the organization's Climate and Resilience Hub (CRH).

With many Government's announcing net-zero carbon targets to align with the Paris Agreement, and financial regulators and investors demanding more climate disclosures, companies need strategic advice and practical support. With over 22 years of global experience in climate change, sustainability, strategy, advisory and program delivery, ROOKE will drive Willis Towers Watson's client-guidance on climate transition risk disclosure, management and opportunities.

Prior to joining Willis Towers Watson, ROOKE was Global Director for Disclosure at CDP (formerly Carbon Disclosure Project), responsible for delivering and maintaining the world's leading environmental disclosure platform used by thousands of companies and cities worldwide. He has also set up and led environmental and sustainability consulting practices at Infosys and Logica across EMEA and APAC, delivering strategies, advisory and climate transition projects spanning private and public sector.

In his new role, Rooke will guide the advice and analysis Willis Towers Watson provides clients to help them navigate and thrive in the transition to a low carbon economy and contribute to the innovation of new services and products across our investment, risk and human capital businesses.
