Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL)

Edmund joined CISL in 2022 as a Project Manager in the Business and Nature team having previously worked in a biodiversity consulting role. He primarily works on projects at the intersection of corporate activity and the natural world and has experience of working with sectors as diverse as fashion, mining, finance and not-for-profit.


Holding an MSc in Global Sustainability Solutions and a BA in Geography from the University of Exeter, Edmund’s academic record includes a dissertation on the impacts of light pollution on ecosystem services as well as a period leading a project with the British Antarctic Survey that explored the climate impact of whole-lifecycle food-related emissions.

He enjoys travelling and has visited some of the most biodiverse regions of the planet, cementing a desire to build a career in a field that is attempting to rapidly address the loss of nature and reduce the impacts of economic activity on ecological systems. Outside of work he can be found enjoying adventurous sports such as scuba diving and skiing (in which he is also a qualified instructor).
