Sustainability director provides a path to net zero for local businesses

Haydock based Energy and Sustainability Consultants, Brownlow Utilities has appointed a new director of sustainability, Lee McGhie to drive the company forward.

The award-winning business has grown from strength to strength over the last few years in response to evolving energy market dynamics and legislation. Brownlow has recognised that it is more important than ever for businesses to address their sustainability, particularly as their supply chain and competition are getting ahead of the game.

With 20 years’ experience in the global energy and sustainability sector, Lee will bring a wealth of knowledge to the company and the businesses it serves.

Lee said “Sustainability is now an integral mechanism for change. More than ever before, the focus on reduction, waste, accountability and gender equality are the staple requirements for a successful business going forwards. He continued “It is great to be back partnering with UK businesses advising on their sustainability plans for the future, having spent the last ten years in Australia and the UK in a global role”.

Lee will help local businesses strive in understanding the existing and new sustainability obligations launched under the recent #COP26 gathering in Glasgow, providing insight, strategic planning and competitive advantage.

Shaun McClarnon, managing director of Brownlow Utilities is confident that Lee will make a real, positive difference to UK businesses. He said “I have known Lee for many years - as an employee and as a friend. It has been refreshing to see him develop a positive career within the energy and sustainability industry and achieve recognition amongst his peers. His experience of managing the sustainability strategies for large UK, European and Global businesses is unprecedented, and I am confident that he can transfer these skills to UK & EU business both large and small.
