I joined LDA Design as Sustainability Manager to support bringing its CSER plan to life and to work with its network of carbon champions across the studios. In my previous role, I developed a sustainability strategy and was given responsibility for its delivery, launching product lifecycle assessments, Scope 1, 2 and 3 carbon calculations with the aim to reduce CO2 outputs by 5 per cent per annum, and supply chain audits.
My background is in Geography, and I’m excited to be working for a company that has such a positive impact on our natural and built environments; and to be surrounded by inspiring minds.
In my free time you’ll usually find me in the kitchen trialling new vegetarian recipes – I’m not very good at following recipes and so the outcome is somewhat dubious.
The Peak, Hong Kong. On my study year abroad, I regularly walked up from HKU to the Peak for sunset. The contrast of hiking in nature to get to the viewpoint and then looking down over the density of skyscrapers against the backdrop of the ocean by day, and the buildings coming to life with neon lights by night… that view never got old.
Along Regent’s Canal from Hoxton to Victoria Park and back. A lockdown regular but a walk I didn’t get bored of. Being by the water (albeit a green canal) calmed me, and often got to meet a few canal boat cats along the way.
'A Little Life' by Hanya Yanagihara and 'Kite Runner' by Khaled Hosseini. Both are sad, but I would say hands up that 'A Little Life' is the best book I’ve ever read and may ever read.
