What are your main responsibilities?

I am responsible for working with key clients to manage and enhance their sustainability performance. This includes consideration of the whole building life-cycle and how initiatives at one stage can have material impacts across different timescales and for different stakeholders.

What’s the best part of your job?

I was brought up to respect our planet, getting to do that for a living is a great feeling and makes a much bigger impact than I could as an individual.

Where is your dream holiday destination?

My dream holiday destination is anywhere with mountains and snow. Top of the list is Japan as the snow is legendary and the culture fascinating!
