Our People

Alice Johnson
Junior Consultant
I am a member of the Sustainable Business team, with a particular focus on resource efficiency and the circular economy. I have a keen interest in supporting public sector organisations to find circular economy solutions. I enjoy playing football, biking and hiking.

Alice is based in Eunomia’s Manchester office and has a background in developing sustainable strategies for large organisations, including focussing on food waste and sustainable procurement.

Recent Experience

Since joining Eunomia in May 2018, Alice has gained experience working on projects across a range of fields in both the public and private sector.

Alice has worked on a number of single-use plastics and packaging-related projects, with specific experience working alongside charities and local authorities. This has involved producing carbon footprint analyses, comparative analyses of a wider range of environmental criteria – including littering, and identifying examples of good practice and potential areas for improvement – and supporting in the production of action plans to enable the changes needed.  In addition, her work on plastics has seen her review spend data on catering consumables and food and drink products – including analysis of product specifications and a consultation with the local authority, procurement, catering and waste management representatives – to understand how consumables and other products are used and disposed of. She also supported with supply chain consultations and carried out desk research to understand product specifications, pricing and availability of alternative products on the market.

Alice has gained experience on a number of policy projects for the UK Government and European Commission. She has supported on a WEEE Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) scheme project for DEFRA, producing a comprehensive analysis of the current UK situation, as well as supporting in the analysis of various EU countries to outline best practice and acting as assistant Project Manager.

Alice has also worked on a number of projects for WRAP, which aim to support public sector organisations across a wide range of industries to implement circular economy principles. This has included organisations in the construction, catering and facilities management industries.

Career History

Alice has previously worked as a Sustainability Assistant at the University of Manchester where she was responsible for developing a food waste strategy for the University. Alice also worked with the Manchester Climate Change Agency, gathering research for the city’s Climate Change Action Plan, and facilitating workshops with key stakeholders. She also supported a citywide reuse scheme, which involved partnership work between the University, Manchester City Council and the British Heart Foundation, and which saved hundreds of tonnes of items from being sent to landfill.

Alice completed a BSc degree in Environmental Science at the University of Manchester with First Class Honours, which included an independent final-year dissertation based on an original research project, and numerous fieldwork projects within the UK and abroad.
