Say hello to your new Sustainability Officer!


This week we welcome a new addition to the Environment Team as Lynsey Smith begins her year as Sustainability Officer.

Lynsey has recently graduated from the School of Biology at the University of St Andrews, and has a keen interest in biodiversity and environmental protection. Lynsey is eager to get stuck into the projects that the previous Sustainability Officer, Tucker Diego, took part in, as well as thinking of new ventures the Environment Team can get involved with. Tucker has been a highly valued member of the Environment Team, and will be sorely missed. We wish him all the best for the future!

Lynsey will be focusing on outreach, engagement and communication with staff and students, as well as supporting University sustainability initiatives like the Transition group. She will also be supporting the other three members of the Environment Team; Roddy Yarr, David Stutchfield and Barbara Aitken on their exciting projects, including the Environmental Facilitators Network, recycling schemes and implementing renewable energy systems to achieve the university’s goal of becoming carbon neutral for energy by 2016!
