Head of Service Excellence
Why I work for Seismic:
We have wonderful, ambitious clients and a fantastic, action-oriented team. At Seismic, we support businesses to be a force for good by joining the dots between their B Corp ambitions and specific sustainability initiatives, such as Net Zero. I enjoy working to create positive social and environmental impact every day.
I spent a couple of years calculating businesses’ carbon footprints and advising on carbon tax. As the conversation began to shift beyond compliance, I started working with these same businesses to create exciting sustainability strategies and I led a team of software engineers in building a carbon management platform. I was drawn to B Corp because it knits together these vital environmental elements with the social side, giving businesses a comprehensive strategic framework.
Some companies I’ve worked with:
Coutts, PZ Cussons, Wasabi, JustEat, PwC, Aviva Investors and Royal Mail.
A seismic change I’d like to see in the future:
I’m inspired by courageous people and businesses who do good with urgency. I look forward to seeing more courage, more urgency and more collaboration.
Where I like to be:
I live in London and I like to be rowing on the Thames at the weekend, whatever the weather.
B Corp certification demand is accelerating and, in response, B Lab is ensuring that its verification process is scalable, rigorous and geographically local to each applicant.
The SBTi has launched the world’s first framework for businesses to set net zero targets that are in line with climate science, limiting temperature rise to 1.5°C. This is a historic moment because it clarifies and solidifies the fact that decarbonisation needs to be core to net zero strategies. Read more from our Net Zero lead, Inge Hertzog.
Tesco committed earlier this month to net zero emissions across its full value chain by 2050. This is a respectable approach and signifies new ground for the industry. Read what it means for Tesco’s supply chain here.
