US President-elect Joe Biden has named former US Secretary of State John Kerry as his climate envoy, BBC reported.
Kerry was one of several people named for top positions by the Biden transition team on Monday.
Other key picks included long-time Biden aide Antony Blinken as secretary of state, while reports say former Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen will be the choice for treasury secretary.
It comes as calls are growing for Donald Trump to concede the election.
He has made unsubstantiated claims of electoral fraud and is continuing to pursue legal challenges over the result.
