TEAM

Climate change is impacting all of us, in every part of the world, across every walk of life. It will take all of us working together to mitigate climate impacts, while identifying opportunities for innovation and value creation.

Plan C has formed an ecosystem of Advisors, Interns and Alliance Partners who work collaboratively to serve our clients’ climate preparedness needs — from education, assessment and strategy through execution.

We operate under the common belief that business can play a leading role in addressing climate change. We understand the challenges facing business leaders and bring our own experiences as executives and board directors to bear on all our assignments.

PLAN C ADVISORS

Plan C Advisors are independent consultants who work individually and collectively on Plan C engagements. We have served as senior executives across industry sectors including energy, apparel, food, travel and technology.  We bring deep expertise in areas such as organizational change, risk assessment and mitigation, corporate strategy, value creation and stakeholder engagement.
