Georgia Elliott-Smith, Director of Element 4 Ltd.(LINKEDIN PROFILE)
Georgia Elliott-Smith started her career at Bovis in 1995 as one of the first Environmental Managers in the UK construction industry. Career highs include winning Young Achiever of the Year at the Building Awards, being made a UN Special Junior Envoy for Youth & the Environment following an expedition to Antarctica, and becoming one of the world’s first Chartered Environmentalists.
In 2003, she established sustainability consultancy Element 4 and has worked with clients including LandSec, Deloitte, Accenture, ARM and DEFRA to deliver more sustainable projects and business practices.
A critic of traditional approaches to environmental management and CSR, Georgia has developed an approach she calls “disruptive sustainability” – dumping the KPI’s, burning the endless reports (recovering the energy, of course) and making sustainability everyone’s job.
Host of the Enviro Mental podcast and frequent media contributor, Georgia will lead a lively practical workshop that shakes up what you think you know about sustainable business.”
