I have initiated/led or project managed a wide variety of sustainability and climate change projects,working across sectors and geographical. Turning ideas into action, climate policy, research and building diverse relationships is important to me, as is collaboration.
WHERE ARE YOU NOW? Right now, I’m based in Cumbria where some of my family live.
WHY EDENWORKSGREEN? EdenWorks for short. After working with the business sector on climate change, I tried with others to bring to Hong Kong the EdenProject. Then, I worked globally/ Asia with the faith sector around the Paris Agreement so keeping ‘Eden’ as part of my company name made sense. I enjoy working across sectors and my focus is currently on sustainable finance.
WHAT IS NET ZERO? ‘Net-zero’ is a key part of the Paris Agreement which sets a global goal to reach ‘net zero’ emissions in the second half of the century. Simply put, we’ll reach ‘net zero’ when there is an overall balance between emissions produced and emissions removed from the atmosphere. Removal could be via nature, as trees and peat take carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, or through technologies which are often described as achieving “negative emissions” or “sinks”.
In the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) pathways for limiting warming to 1.5 °C, net-zero CO2 emissions are reached around 2050 (2046–55). However, net-zero greenhouse-gas (GHG) emissions will be reached one or two decades later.
