I joined Promar International in 2013 after seven years within the environmental consultancy sector.
My focus is to develop sustainable food supply chains and understand the impact food production has on the environment from farm to fork.
Working with clients ranging from the utilities sector to food supply businesses, I aim to help companies understand their environmental impact and the ways they can make efficiencies and cost-savings by being more sustainable.
My main responsibility has been developing our certified carbon footprint tool and I am currently working on a tool for developing a sustainability assessment for the whole food supply chain. I have also managed a range of catchment management projects to assess diffuse pollution risk, and help clients engage with farmers in ways to prevent or reduce losses to the environment.
“Losses of nitrogen to air and water through storage, application and land management practices have a significant impact on the environment, and the Clean Air Strategy will put the food supply chain under increasing pressure to manage this.Matt Brennan, Head of Sustainability at Promar International
Farmers waiting to be forced down the line of better nutrient and water management may end up incurring high costs, so it’s important for farmers, with the support of the wider food supply chain, to be proactive and build future policy compliance into their business plans now.”
