Herbert joins The Climate Group from Madano, the integrated communications consultancy, where he was director, working with multinational energy businesses and industry.

Previously, he spent seven years as head of government affairs at Jaguar Land Rover, focusing on UK and international stakeholder issues.

Herbert’s career combines external relations with a background in sustainable development, including spells with the Department for International Development (DFID) in Cairo and Shell International in The Hague.

He said: “Communications is central to The Climate Group’s remit, which is what really attracted me to the role. The organisation brings together the world’s leading businesses and sub national governments to drive climate action through high profile events such as Climate Week NYC to campaigns such as RE100, committing businesses to 100% renewable power”.

Also joining the organisation is former Arts Council England head of media, Nazneen Nawaz, in the role of head of media and corporate communications.

Reporting to Herbert, she will be responsible for leading the organisation’s global media strategy, integrated communications campaigns for key initiatives and reputation management.

She added: “The Climate Group has established itself as a leading and forward thinking climate organisation globally. I look forward to working with the team to heighten the impact of our communications.”

Helen Clarkson, chief executive at The Climate Group, said: “Communications across business leaders and all levels of government is critical in helping to secure clean energy solutions and innovative policies. By strengthening our communications team, I am confident that we can help to increase the momentum of climate action in the coming years.”
