Saad Malik joined National Grid earlier this year as the Group ESG Reporting Lead, responsible for developing the Group’s ESG reporting for all stakeholders, from investors and lenders, to customers, employees, communities and charitable organisations. This includes disclosures against notable reporting frameworks including GRI, SASB, the TCFD recommendations and the EU Taxonomy, as well as leading Green Financing reporting and disclosing National Grid’s performance against its own sustainability commitments. A key element of this is ensuring published information is credible and decision-useful, in order to avoid ‘greenwashing.’ He has also contributed to the Group's strategic stance on key regulatory issues.
Saad was previously a Senior Manager at PwC, with an accounting and finance background, before becoming one of the founding members of PwC’s ESG Risk and Reporting Advisory team in London, supporting clients across a variety of industries. He is also halfway through studying for a master’s degree in Economics and Policy of Energy and the Environment at UCL.
