Paul Adderley – Managing Director              07917 372 573

I am most comfortable facilitating conversations with people which allows my lateral thinking to naturally connect ideas to form “the big picture”. This strategic perspective then focuses my joy of data analysis to be insightful and to have the greatest impact for our clients and beyond. For Beyond Green, my attention is to nurture the team to flourish, and to continue to be a force for positive change.

beyond the office:  The buzz of winter mountaineering in the Scottish hills, cycling to work – a necessity as I like baking cakes!

my Sustainable Development Goal: unlike some action oriented goals, this goal is principles based. For me, inequalities prevent people from reaching their potential. Inequalities can take many forms but relate to access to education, food, water, decent work, democratic voice, etc.

Donald Rose – Renewable Energy Advisor             0131 624 9816

I am an advocate of collaborating with businesses by sharing my technical knowledge to find practical answers to their sustainability challenges and their long term prosperity.

I like to develop technical feasibility studies and give insightful analysis to help senior management to have confidence in cost effective ways to reduce their energy costs and carbon emissions.  With assurance services, I conduct technical and supplier due diligence, always ensuring my advice is balanced and impartial, so our clients can make business decisions with confidence.

beyond the office: I am a keen photographer (and pleased to see some of my work on our website) which fits perfectly with my love of fishing the lochs and rivers of Scotland.

my Sustainable Development Goal: when you consider that two thirds of this planet is covered by water, it seems obvious that looking after oceans, rivers and lochs (or lakes) should be one of our most important priorities. We need to eliminate water pollution, over-abstraction, unsustainable fishing, and on a wider scale – minimise the impacts of climate change on life below water (and above it!).

McKenna Smith – Sustainable Construction Advisor             07460 123 133

My passion stems from the idea that sustainable cities and communities can create a better world for us all. I am interested in how the built environment can become more sustainable through low-carbon solutions that create lower costs for businesses. My bachelor’s degree in sustainability allows me to view problems through an environmental lens. I brought this interdisciplinary thought process to my master’s degree in carbon management, which makes the connection between sustainability and the business world.

As a Sustainable Construction Advisor, I help assist in delivering sustainable solutions to a wide variety of areas including the construction sector.

beyond the office: When I’m not eating my way through Edinburgh’s breakfast spots, I am passionate about creating positive spaces for women in their early careers to have informed discussions about issues in the world. Check out the ‘She is Sustainable‘ blog post for more!

my Sustainable Development Goal: with urbanisation occurring faster each year it is important to address problems with industrialisation and infrastructure with climate change in mind. By using technology and innovative thinking, we can foster long-term sustainable development for the millions more people that will be living in urban environments in the future.

Oliver Byrne – Sustainability Advisor             07807 156 007

I am passionate about improving environmental performance and profitability without sacrificing one for the other. This concept involves maximising efficiency and embedding sustainability throughout an organisation in order to better control resources and operations. The interest in the financial aspects of business and environmental performance has driven my previous studies of Economics with Management, followed by Environmental Sustainability at BA Hons and MSc levels respectively.

As a Sustainability Advisor, I primarily identify opportunities for businesses to reduce their environmental impact and improve their profitability through resource efficiency and on-site energy generation. My role involves investigating the current systems in place before calculating and reporting potential improvements.

beyond the office: I am a big fan of sport, with football being a priority. Good food and travelling are also at the top of the list.
