European Energy Business Sector Leader



Richard has been working in the environment sector since 1994, after completing an MSc in Environmental Pollution Control Management at Heriot Watt University. His early career was leading environmental management and implementing ISO14001 in the whisky industry, including securing the first ISO14001 certification for a whisky distillery.
