Liz started her working life in the management consultancy division of PricewaterhouseCoopers, specialising in financial services, before a damascene conversion when studying for her MSc in Corporate Governance and Business Ethics at Birkbeck College. That conversion led her to volunteer on a range of campaigns in London, including the Old Home Superhome network. Liz is also a resident director of Hockerton Housing Project, an exemplar eco housing development in Nottinghamshire which aims to bring sustainability to life. This co-operative delivered a scheme under the Retrofit for the Future project that cut two homes’ carbon emissions by 80% with offsite renewables covering remaining emissions. She is also a director of Sustainable Hockerton, a community-owned wind turbine that raises funds for local sustainability projects.
