He helps organisations implement Environmental Social and Government (ESG) strategies, best practice approaches and understand how decarbonisation can create value for their organisation.

He is committed to and passionate about growing a network of clients and partners with a genuine interest in decarbonisation.

He is a member of Arup’s net zero carbon steering group focused on how we measure carbon in our building projects.
