James works across KPMG’s Climate Risk practice and leads development of KPMG Climate IQ, leveraging his technical and commercial experience to assess the most material impacts of climate change on businesses, and identifying development activities which drive insights to deliver maximum value for our client. This experience is also leveraged through his role in leading KPMG’s Climate Risk projects for an international selection of corporate and financial clients.
