Liz has worked in the sustainability field for 12 years and diversifies between her passions of events, festivals, venues and corporate sustainability. Her background is in surveying and she also focuses on green design and construction and interior design of buildings. A large range but the issues and solutions can be the same across the sectors.
Despite having limited interest in cars as she grew up, beyond getting from A to B, she has been drawn in recent years to the transport sustainability field and new technologies for a low carbon future.
She has authored the travel and transport chapter in the recently launched Show Must Go On report and sits on the Powerful Thinking / Vision 2025 sustainability think tank. She is a trustee for Energy Revolution, the carbon balancing organisation which invests donations from fossil fuelled festival travel miles in renewable energy projects and is particularly involved in the due diligence of the projects.
She works with Cambridge Live and the Cambridge Folk Festival on all green initiatives and which is rated ‘Outstanding’ in the A Greener Festival Awards. She is also advising Sony Pictures Entertainment on their new UK headquarters relocation sustainability and their environmental management system.
