Unfortunately, the time has come for me to move on from the CO2balance family to pursue other ventures. Heavy hearted, I bid farewell to the wonderful people I have had the privilege to work with since I joined the company in 2014. I am immensely proud to have called you all colleagues and friends. Every song ends but that is no reason not to have enjoyed the music.
State of the Climate Change Agenda
On the back of the Paris Agreement, one can be in no doubt that the climate change war is being won and the 21st century is destined to be shaped by the low carbon agenda. It has been an honour fighting from the same trench as you all over the past couple of years. Those on the opposing side in the climate change war appear to be weakening. They seem marginalised, defensive, feeling the argument slip away. Drip. Drift. Drain. Old energy to new cleaner ambition.
I firmly believe CO2balance has been a voice, ratcheting up ambition on climate in both the UK and further afield, working with organisations to measure and manage their climate change impacts. CO2balance will end up on the right side of history, influencing the world for better since its inception in 2003, by practically creating innovative solutions that contribute to the energy transition required to move to a low carbon future. Part of a transition that will transform the world we live in. What an exciting thought that is.
I would like to wish happiness and good health to every person I have worked with from the UK to East Africa. To my East African colleagues; no more and no less than all others, you possess all human attributes; talents, deficiencies, ambitions and virtues. It was wonderful to have met you all and you have left a lasting impression on my young life and I sincerely thank you all for this.
