Toby joined Eunomia in July 2019 after working within luxury fashion PR firm Rainbowwave PR. Since then, Toby has utilised his knowledge of chemistry, communications and textiles to deliver a wide range of projects.
His technical background has led to the delivery of a wide variety of policy and sustainable business projects within the plastics sector, including the circularity of PET, chemical recycling and the calculation of recycled content. His experience within textiles has also been utilised within numerous projects concerning the circularity of fibres and the environmental impact of the fashion industry.
Another significant area of work includes the public procurement of environmental services contracts for local government. As a confident communicator, Toby has been involved extensively within client engagement and management across a variety of market areas.
Toby was responsible for research regarding the function and maturity of chemical recycling technologies for CHEMTrust, and led research into the sustainability of synthetic fibres for Changing Markets. He also led the technical research into digital identifier hardware to improve textiles circularity for systems partner EON. Other work includes evaluating the circularity of PET, and developing proposals for the methodology to calculate recycled content for DG Environment.
From a procurement perspective, work has included project management, development of contract documentation, tender evaluation and management of contractor/client communications for Boroughs such as Solihull, Lambeth, Kensington & Chelsea, Wycombe and Waltham Forest.
Prior to joining Eunomia Toby worked as a Senior Account Executive at Rainbowwave PR, a fashion PR & communications firm, where he was responsible for the creation and implementation of long and short-term overarching communications strategies for designer brands to enhance their image within UK and international markets. Having worked extensively with senior management, he gained valuable experience in the textiles market, the power and influence of media and communications within the sector, and how to use it to a company’s advantage.
