The appointment of James Wyse to a new sustainability role at EEF signals a drive in the organisation’s ambitions to reinvigorate its sustainability offerings

Manufacturers’ organisation, EEF, has appointed James Wyse to the newly created role of national sustainability lead.

The move is part of a planned relaunch of EEF’s environmental sustainability service, which provides support for manufacturers looking to boost their green credentials.

Wyse will lead a team of environmental consultants based throughout England and Wales who will support manufacturers with their sustainability agenda, including the transition to ISO14001:2015, energy and carbon management, the Energy Management System 50001, resource efficiency and compliance.

Wyse joined EEF in 2012 as a climate and environment consultant having previously held roles including group environment manager, group sustainability manager and environment and health and safety manager in a career in the brewery industry spanning just over 20 years.

He has a HND in Mineral Processing and Materials Reclamation, a BSC in Science and a MSc with Distinction in Environmental Management for Business. EEF aims to expand the breadth and depth of its sustainability offering in order to provide “up-to-date and accessible solutions” for manufacturers and to identify and reduce their future environmental business risks.

Wyse said: “By investing in this area we are committed to extending our first-class support for manufacturers looking to realise the benefits and opportunities of the sustainability agenda.

“Sustainability is only going to grow in importance and my role will be to keep on top of developments and to build and enhance our consultancy service so that companies can get the biggest bang for their environmental buck.”
