The Alliance Team
Low Carbon Project Officer
Amy is the lead for the Scottish Cities Alliance Low Carbon workstream. Before joining the Alliance, Amy worked in sustainability and low carbon roles in both the public and private sector. She has an MSc in Applied Carbon Management.
Amy leads on collaborative projects with the themes of energy efficiency, low carbon heat, energy systems and the circular economy. The circular economy is all about keeping natural resources in use for as long as possible, maximising their potential and then recovering and regenerating products and materials at the end of the life cycle. Amy recognises the important role that Scotland's Cities have, particularly through the Scottish Cities Alliance, in supporting, developing and enabling the low carbon economy.
