Event description

Dr. Simon Forsyth will open the webinar, providing an overview on how businesses can measure and manage their total carbon emissions. Dr. Forsyth will examine all aspects of operations, including energy use, business processes, transport and supply chains.

The second of our speakers, Martyn Bromley, will focus on how emissions can be reduced in aviation.

The commercial aviation industry is currently coming under extreme social and commercial pressure to improve its performance on emissions and sustainability. The talk will examine the short and long-term initiatives being developed, both by large operators and manufacturers and by creative start-ups, to improve sustainability and carbon footprint throughout the aviation industry. These range from changes to ground and flight operations to radical new aircraft and engine designs, such as hybrid-electric (currently in development) and the very real challenges the industry faces to bring these to fruition.

Part of the CIWEM Climate Emergency Adaption Net Zero digital series

Dr Simon Forsyth

A founding Director of Carbon Lens Ltd, Simon stumbled into environmental management in 1989 by offering to look after a paper-recycling bin. After that, things rather ran away with themselves. He helped set up the employee Green Teams at Hewlett Packard in Bristol, ran them voluntarily for five years, then became HP Ltd’s full-time environmental specialist and ISO14001 auditor.

He left in 2000 to run a small consultancy, went on to run the Econet in-work training project, helped deliver the southwest-wide Envision programme, established a number of Resource Efficiency Clubs for small businesses, trained a lot of Trading Estates, and now focuses on the business linkages between cost-intensity, carbon-intensity, and becoming more profitable.

Martyn Bromley

Martyn Bromley comes into the sustainability industry after a lifetime career in aerospace engineering project management. He has worked with key aerospace organisations including BAe Systems, Airbus and Ministry of Defence, he has covered many engineering disciplines such as aircraft and systems design and manufacturing, maintenance and is currently providing consulting services to one the leading aircraft leasing companies as well as working with Carbon Lens Ltd to help businesses in the industry supply chain become more sustainable.

Martyn has a deep understanding of the commercial aviation market and the growing number of initiatives in the aviation industry to reduce emissions.

He now focuses all his time on cost-saving through carbon management, Environmental Management Systems, and resource efficiency. Combining his background as a developer and his passion for the environment, Simon developed the Three CCC's calculators, a sophisticated carbon tracking system. He is now regarded as one of the leaders in carbon tracking in the UK, regularly proving his insights for high profile events.
