Sarah works with managers in procurement, facilities, operations and sustainability/environment to help understand performance, build capacity and realise tangible improvements.
Sarah currently manages our work with the UK’s central government departments to support and verify their Greening Government Commitments reporting.

This involves liaising with 22 departments to coordinate quarterly reporting deadlines and to analyse sustainability performance data. This includes over 3 million tonnes of reported GHG emissions as well as estate water, operational waste, paper consumption and domestic flights.
