Tell us, in 20 words or fewer, what’s your background?
After graduating with a first-class honours degree in Psychology, I worked on management consultancy placements at Bain, McKinsey and Livingbridge Private Equity.
What motivates you?
The knowledge that the work I do reduces climate inequity, creating a fairer, more just world.
What kind of companies do you work with?
I provide communications support to clients spanning clean energy, technology and sustainable finance.
Describe a recent campaign you’ve worked on that excites you.
The Planet Tracker Initiative investigates market failure related to ecological limits. Their most recent report uncovers Argentina’s economic dependency on the soybean crop and the impacts of climate change on sovereign investment capital.
I never thought I’d have the opportunity to work with such thought-provoking material, and it’s an honour to work with the Planet Tracker team.
Who are your top three dream clients?
Climate Bonds: This initiative works to mobilize the $100 trillion bond market for climate change solutions, driving down the cost of capital for climate projects in developed and emerging markets.
Ruby Cup: A sustainable menstrual care alternative: the silicon cup. Most famous for the ‘Buy One, Give One’ programme, wherein for every cup sold, another is donated to a girl or woman without access to menstrual care products.
Salix Finance: An independent, UK-based company which provides loans and government funding to the public sector for energy efficiency projects in England, Scotland and Wales.
Can you recommend a life or game-changing book?
For young women of colour, ‘Queenie’ by Candice Carty-Williams is a must-read. It explores the mental health of a young British woman of Caribbean descent living in south London.
What do you listen to when you’re cooking dinner?
My housemates rabbiting on!
What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?
Finally, who is your eco hero?
Anna Guyer, of course.
