What are your main responsibilities?

Delivering energy and environmental target reporting. Leading energy auditing and analysis to identify opportunities as well as ensuring client legal compliance with reporting schemes.

What’s the best part of your job?

As a passionate environmentalist, I really enjoy being part of a company that is directly working with clients to identify and reduce environmental impacts as well as lead the charge in improving sustainability in the built environment.

Where is your dream holiday destination?

Would love to travel everywhere with my wife. Exploring the world and its many wonders. I would say Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand are high on the list as is the Galapagos and having visited Peru in 2017, there is definite appeal to see more of South America. I would also really like to see the Grand Canyon, visit the North Pole (before it melts) and see polar bears, Wales (the town) in Alaska and look across to Russia. I would also love to visit Antarctica.
