Our Analyst Daniel Collins talks about his experince at @carbon.smart, his interest in tackling #climatechange and future amibitions
I joined Carbon Smart as an intern in January and have since progressed to an analyst position. As a member of the Energy team, I work with organisations across the spectrum, from parish councils to large businesses. My team and I strive to identify energy saving opportunities for our clients, helping them to reduce both their costs and carbon footprint. The enthusiasm of our clients to limit their environmental impact fuels our desire to continue this work.
Before joining Carbon Smart, I studied Climate Change and Development at the University of Reading. This provided me with a holistic view of environmental and social issues and enhanced my ambition to forge a career in sustainability.
Climate change is the pressing environmental issue of our time. While others are standing by, companies like Carbon Smart are taking action to safeguard the planet for future generations. The opportunity to be at the heart of this challenge is something of which I am very proud, though there is a long way to go.
I have been lucky enough to study abroad in Auckland. During this time, I was able to explore New Zealand and fit in flying visits to Australia and South East Asia. Having caught the travel bug, I am now determined to add more countries to the list. My travel goal is to spend a summer travelling across Asia on the Trans-Siberian Express - although I’ll need to get some tips from our director, Julie, first! In my spare time, I enjoy swimming, going to gigs and exploring the various food stallsLondon has to offer, particularly those around our office in Farringdon #meettheteam #whysustainability #makeadifference
