17 June 2017 – Tony Juniper, CISL Fellow and renowned environmentalist, author and advisor to business and governments, was today recognised for his services to conservation with a CBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours.

Tony has supported the work of the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) for over 10 years as a faculty member and expert contributor, and as a Fellow for four years. Over this time he has made significant contributions to the development of CISL’s executive education programmes, which support major public and private sector organisations to prepare for a sustainable future.

Tony's latest book, the Ladybird guide to climate change, co-authored with HRH The Prince of Wales and Dr Emily Shuckburgh, was published in January 2017.

Professor Carol Brayne, Professor of Public Health Medicine, Department of Public Health and Primary Care, University of Cambridge and a member of CISL's Management Board, was also honoured with a CBE.

CISL’s Founder Director, Polly Courtice, was made a Dame in 2016 for services to sustainability leadership and in recognition of CISL’s impact as a leading institute catalysing action towards more sustainable practice in business and governments worldwide.

CISL Fellow Dr Emily Shuckburgh, a climate scientist at British Antarctic Survey, was recognised with an OBE in 2016 for services to Science and Public Communication of Science. Emily is an active faculty member on CISL’s executive education programmes where she presents climate science in an engaging way to senior leaders from the private and public sector.
