Health, Safety and Environmental Manager, Coleg Gwent

Ian is an inspirational and tenacious individual who has produced a step change in sustainability for the College.

It seems there has been no stone left unturned in the quest to minimise waste and increase efficiency. In his 5 year plan, Ian has explored the College’s general waste, food waste, specialist waste and energy efficiency to ensure that anything that can be recycled or minimised is.

Ian has established and contributed to cross College groups and happily shared his expertise with other colleges and institutions. Using all his skills, Ian has mobilised people at all of the College’s campuses, redesigned systems and in doing so achieved ISO 14001, tangible year on year savings for the College and increased the College’s profile.
