Gallowglass managing director Nick Grecian said: "As a company, we have already achieved BS8901 and ISO14001, but we need to take this to the next level. Kirsten Henson is ideally placed to ensure that sustainability policies convert into practical reality throughout the supply chain."
Kirsten Henson has been providing consultancy in the construction of the Olympic Park and has assisted in the planning and delivery of several Olympic test events.
Henson said: "The approach for Gallowglass Sustainability is very much about developing tools and processes that fit with clients’ existing approach rather than adding to bureaucracy and paperwork. It’s also about inspiring people to think differently and ask the right questions. We’ll be helping procurement teams to understand that a solution that uses energy-efficient equipment, diverts waste from landfill or substitutes safe materials for harmful ones can deliver short term financial gains to any project."
