Alex is at the forefront of developing Eunomia’s services for new and existing clients, responding to and shaping the wider sustainability agenda.
An environmental engineer by background with a strong interest in ecological sustainability, Alex’s technical work has focused on water, energy and resource management at both the policy and implementation levels. This technical experience underpins his current role in developing new areas of business across the whole of Eunomia. His experience working in the private sector, the public sector, and for not-for-profits means that he has a deep understanding of the needs and dynamics of clients of all backgrounds. Alex has a keen awareness of how environmental issues can align with commercial interests, especially within the rapidly changing context of climate emergency and ecological breakdown.
A highly experienced communicator of environmental issues and ideas, Alex develops unique and effective methods of engagement for diverse groups of people. He is highly skilled at developing and implementing workshops and facilitating groups.
Having rejoined Eunomia in 2018, Alex is key account manager for a number of our clients, working across all of our technical areas. He acts as a mentor for many of our junior consultants in commercials, and is responsible for the development and delivery of commercial training for Eunomia consultants. Not to be kept away from project work, he has recently been involved in work for DG Environment developing guidance on Extended Producer Responsibility schemes, DEFRA for identifying future resource risks, and private clients on market visibility.
Alex is developing and coordinating Eunomia’s offerings to support local authorities and companies who have declared climate emergencies, addressing both strategy and detailed implementation plans. A rapidly emerging and developing area of work, he is drawing on the unique breadth and depth of Eunomia’s experience to provide a response that has real, meaningful impact for clients, and thereby the wider environment.
After a diverse career in engineering for sustainability, including work for NGOs in Africa, for the UK government and at the Centre for Alternative Technology, Alex originally joined Eunomia in 2013. He worked across the organization on a wide variety of projects, including evaluation of the competitiveness of minerals sector in the EU for DG Grow, assessment of economic tools for promoting sustainable drainage for UKWIR and assessing exemptions from the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive. Subsequently he worked as Deputy Head of a cutting-edge international school where he was responsible for the development of a leading environmental education programme. From this he has experience of communicating environmental issues to a wide variety of audiences of all ages, combining challenging technical concepts and the social and psychological elements.
