Heather leads the UK sustainable finance work at E3G, working closely with CSOs, Business and Investors to deliver transformative finance outcomes in the UK. Heather also works to support global ambition setting by the UK. Heather has led campaigns around a number of crucial policy reforms including the UK’s Green Finance Strategy, delivering private sector transition plan requirements and ensuring the UK Infrastructure Bank is effective and delivers positive change for communities across the country.

Passionate about the issues of finance and inclusion within climate thinking, Heather’s career transitioned from oil and gas finance to working for a range of Climate CSOs. She has also spent the last five years campaigning around energy and climate finance issues and was the UK’s representative on the Youth Task Force at the NDC Partnership. Heather studied Land Economy at Cambridge, followed by Management at the Judge Business school.

When not thinking about climate change, Heather loves to travel and learn languages (though as a Scot, has varying degrees of success in being understood!).
