Job Title
Water Stewardship Manager
Organisation
WWF-UK
Sector
I work for a non government organisation

About my work:
At WWF we work with businesses to address some of the major shared challenges that companies, ecosystems and communities face.

In my role as Water Stewardship Manager I reach out to UK businesses, highlighting the issues of global water scarcity and poor water quality and the negative impact this has both on ecosystems and on their business and supply chains. We then look at how we can work together to address these challenges.

I also work with businesses such as M&S and SABMiller who are leading the way on water stewardship, demonstrating how businesses can play an important role in ensuring our precious freshwater resources are managed sustainably.

I have worked on sustainability projects for over 10 years. Prior to my current role I worked at an engineering company on a range of projects aiming to support the mainstreaming of sustainability across the water industry’s asset management processes. I also managed WWF-UK’s UK Freshwater Programme, which is using evidence based advocacy to inform the development of the UK’s water policy and water resources management to ensure the resilience of water supply as well as achievement of the most positive outcomes for the freshwater environment.
