RSK Group emphasises sustainability agenda with board appointments

October 17, 2022
RSK Group has appointed two new directors to its board, Chief Scientist Lucy Thomas and Chief Sustainability Officer Stephanie Wray.

“I think, crucially, this emphasises that this is an ongoing journey because we can always look to improve and enhance our sustainability goals, rigorously assessing and pushing boundaries and guiding our clients in the same way. Lucy and Stephanie will help RSK to continue to lead the way to deliver progress against the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and ensuring that we continue to do the right thing for the environment and the societies we live and work in.”

Lucy Thomas, RSK Group Chief Scientist

Lucy Thomas has led teams across the RSK Group as Chief Scientist for several years.  She is Managing Director of RSK Uganda, RSK Tanzania and RSK South Africa along with a new role as the Managing Director of the Centre for Sustainability Excellence in Singapore.

A strong advocate for technical excellence, Lucy co-ordinates RSK’s Heads of Profession programme, encouraging more colleagues to pursue chartered status, or the equivalent in their specialism.  Lucy has a technical background in risk-based remediation and has honed her knowledge around carbon and social value, becoming a powerful voice for the decarbonisation of RSK as a global business.

She said: “I’m excited to join the board and play an instrumental role in shaping the future of our group at what is a very exciting time for businesses globally. Businesses are key to the delivery of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and my role as Chief Scientist supports the realisation of the UN SDGs as we continue to champion talent in all our regions and advocate for change.”

Stephanie Wray, RSK Chief Sustainability Officer

Stephanie joined RSK when it acquired Biocensus in 2019, and she has been a driving force throughout the Group since.  Most recently she has led the formation of Nature Positive, a management consultancy that helps businesses address climate change and biodiversity loss.

Stephanie is highly regarded across environmental industries for her in-depth understanding of both nature and business. As Chief Sustainability Officer, she ensures RSK continues to lead the way when it comes to putting sustainability at the heart of the business. Stephanie has 30 years’ experience in environmental consultancy and holds a PhD in ecology and an MBA specialising in corporate strategy.

Stephanie said: “I’m excited to work with the RSK Board to shape this new role as Chief Sustainability Officer. This role correctly emphasises sustainability as one of RSK’s central guiding principles and I look forward to working across the whole RSK Group to ensure we as a business, and our clients, are ‘doing the right thing’ for the planet and for people.”
