Louise has 17 years’ experience in Resource Management, working for the Waste & Resources Action Programme for 13 of those years, with a particular focus on organics reprocessing for much of that time.
In October 2007, Louise moved to Scotland, as part of a small initial team which established a Scottish programme and office for WRAP. Louise took responsibility for supporting reprocessing and was instrumental in helping to deliver significant food waste reprocessing capacity in Scotland through anaerobic digestion and composting.
Over the last 3 years, Louise has led the Zero Waste Scotland Circular Economy programme, helping to deliver the evidence base for the circular economy in Scotland as part of ‘Team Scotland’, and supporting the issue of the Scottish Government’s Circular Economy strategy in February 2016.
Louise is now focussed on increasing the levels of reuse, repair & remanufacturing in Scotland; and developing circular economy solutions with business.
