Research Interests

I have worked in Environmental Management for 6 years now, mostly as an Environmental Consultant. Having implemented EMSs to the requirements of ISO 14001 as well as the Green Dragon Standard, for a range of organisations from small hospitality businesses through to Local Authorities and multi-nationals. I've also run training courses, workshops and seminars to help companies adopt better environmental practices, comply with legislation and reduce costs. My interests lie in the commercial development of enterprises through the structure of an EMS, as well as the application of environmental legislation, particularly waste regulations. I'm always looking for new opportunities and technologies to help local companies improve their competitive edge whilst reducing their environmental footprint.
