Sustainability Manager, Derwent London
Having studied for an BSc in Environmental Science and an MSc in Environmental Assessment and Management at the University of East Anglia, I started my career at Berkeley Homes as a Sustainability Assistant in 2011. During my six years with the business I worked on a variety of development projects ranging from large scale regeneration schemes to high end residential apartments in central London. Progressing to a management position I was responsible for ensuring social and environmental aspects of sustainability were embedded throughout the lifecycle of a project, from planning through to operation. In 2018 I spent some time developing an environmental strategy for the Royal Veterinary Collage before joining Derwent London in January this year. My focus so far has been developing our approach to achieving net zero carbon by 2030 and engaging all aspects of the business to reach this goal.
