With over 20 years’ experience as a sustainability consultant, mainly within the sports and major events sector, and a parallel career developing purpose, leadership, culture and values in business, Kate knows what actually works when it comes to developing and implementing sustainability strategies, and how to embed them within an organisation.
Kate has worked in sport sustainability for the Royal Yachting Association, The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and for the ATP (Association of Tennis Professionals). She has been working with London Marathon Events since 2013 – at first as an external Sustainability Advisor to the RideLondon cycling event and from 2018 helping LME to develop and implement its sustainability strategy. Kate has recently joined LME permanently as Head of Sustainability, working across LME’s portfolio of running, cycling and swimming events to help deliver on an ambitious sustainability strategy. She also plays a key role in the MSO (Mass Participation Sports Organisers) group – driving collaboration on environmental sustainability throughout the mass participation industry.
Alongside her work with sport, Kate has supported over 100 companies across a wide range of sectors with B Corp certification. B Corps are companies that demonstrate the highest levels of positive social and environmental impact.
And yes – she has run the London Marathon – slowly!
