Sam’s new role at Tetra Tech (a leading provider of high-end consulting and engineering services) will see her advise public sector, utilities and energy clients on how to build back greener post-Covid.
As Director CASE, she secured Invest NI and EU funding to support industry-led, collaborative research at Queen’s University Belfast, Ulster University and the Agri-Food and Biosciences Institute for pioneering projects in energy systems, bioenergy, and marine renewables. As a member of the MATRIX Sustainable Energy Horizon Panel, Sam has also helped shape policymaking for sustainable energy to strengthen Northern Ireland’s economy.
On joining Tetra Tech’s Belfast office, Sam commented, “Had it not been for Covid, climate resilience and greenhouse gas reductions would have taken centre stage on every organisation’s agenda. With the renewed focus on climate, we will be supporting our clients in developing customised strategies for a green recovery. The ways to achieve this are extremely varied, but the end goal is always to help organisations adapt their own operational business drivers to becoming net zero. I believe that’s something Tetra Tech is well suited to take the lead on because of its strong sustainability ethos.”
