Rob Daniel


Specialism Areas

Sustainability, climate change, innovation and trade.

With over 20 years of experience working for government foreign affaires organisations Rob is an expert in globalisation. Especially in the international governance of sustainability, climate change, innovation and trade. He has spent the large majority of this time abroad as a UK diplomat, developing international partnerships to increase technology partnerships, international trade and build coalitions to combat climate change. This includes postings to India, Indonesia and South Africa. The latter where he was responsible for UK Department of International Trade’s (DIT) entire African network.

Whilst in Indonesia Rob took a sabbatical from the Foreign & Commonwealth Office to join Rob Evans in setting up PwC’s Sustainability and Climate Change practice where he gained invaluable experience at the sharp end, delivering many climate change adaptation and offset projects (including REDD+) as well as corporate climate and sustainability strategies.

Rob has a comprehensive understanding of the risks and opportunities afforded by the low carbon transition and cleantech in the developing world coupled track record for driving collaboration and delivering meaningful change. An engineer by background, he has extensive knowledge and experience within the low carbon development sector, having worked closely with energy generation businesses as well as supporting technology development activities in fuel cells, cellulosic bio fuels and electric vehicles.

When not at work or proving his engineering credentials by doing DIY on the wreck of a house he bought, Rob can be seen daydreaming of the times he was diving in the crystal waters of the Indian ocean, surveying the African Savannahs or looking mystified at the riot of diversity that is the Indian subcontinent
