Get To Know Our Speakers!

Matt Wood, Energy and Carbon Manager, Bioregional

Matt Wood is the Energy and Carbon Manager at Bioregional, a charity with 25 years’ experience supporting organisations, including businesses, developers and local authorities, to become more sustainable.

He’s helped retailers and developers create energy and carbon strategies across their property portfolios, including global home improvement company Kingfisher. Kingfisher recently had its science-based targets approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) with the support of Bioregional.

With a PhD in physics, Matt started his career in the energy and innovation sector, primarily working with community groups and local authorities to install renewables and develop energy-efficiency schemes. He has also continued this work at Bioregional.

Dr Simon Russell Forsyth, Director, CarbonLens

Simon stumbled into environmental management in 1989 by offering to look after a paper recycling bin. After that, things rather ran away with themselves. He helped set up the Green Teams at Hewlett Packard in Bristol, ran them for five years, then became HP Ltd’s full-time environmental specialist. He left in 2000 to run a small consultancy, went on to run the Econet in-work training project, helped deliver the southwest-wide Envision programme, established a number of Resource Efficiency Clubs for small businesses, trained a lot of Trading Estates, and now focuses on the business linkages between cost-intensity, carbonintensity, and becoming more profitable. To condense all this into something usable, he produces simplifying software – the dataCollator.

Emma Watson, Senior Consultant, Carbon Credentials

Emma is a Senior Consultant within Carbon Credentials' Strategy, Reporting and Engagement team and is the technical lead on science-based targets. She has extensive knowledge of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol and Scope 3 Standard, and the various requirements of the Science Based Targets initiative and associated methodologies. Emma has experience setting science-based targets for clients in the herbal tea, retail, real estate, construction, professional services, telecommunications, and manufacturing sectors. Most notably, Emma led the team who assisted Tesco in setting its 1.5-degree science-based target, which was the first of its kind to be approved by the SBTi.
