London-based Doughty Hanson & Co, a private equity shop, has added Adam Black to address sustainability matters within the firm and to advise portfolio companies on environmental, social and governance issues.

Black joins from KPMG where he was an associate director in the risk and sustainability team, with responsibility for leading and growing the environmental, health and safety advisory and due diligence businesses as well as aspects of the climate change business. 

“It is clear that a company’s ability to sustain returns over the long term is in part dependent upon its adherence to strong governance, sound environmental stewardship and social responsibility,” Stephen Marquardt of Doughty Hanson said. “We have long recognized this at Doughty Hanson and it has been a key investment consideration for some time.”
