Of his appointment to Carbon Manager, Michael said: “I am eager to help drive net zero transformation at Tilhill and across the organisation and to utilise my understanding of the drivers and mechanics of climate change. I am also a certified Lead Auditor in ISO 14001, 50001, and 14064 standards, putting a firm stamp on the credibility of the carbon team within Tilhill and CarbonStore.
“I have always been concerned about climate change and the possibilities for mitigating it. “Climate change is real,” says Leonardo Di Caprio. It’s happening right now, and it’s the most serious threat our species has ever faced.” When I was offered the post of Carbon Manager the chance to give my quota to climate change mitigation in Tilhill and companywide opened right up. I was ecstatic.”
