Description

Making Behaviour Change for a Zero-Carbon World


Join us for another Women in Sustainability Network event where we dig deep into ideas and topics that matter to us, female change makers looking to maximise our impact and make a difference.

This time we're exploring behaviour change, something that lies at the heart of much of what we all do.

Kindly hosted by UCL, we're being joined by the following contributors;


Hazel Culley, Senior Food Sustainable Product and Raw Material Manager, Marks & Spencers

Hazel has worked at M&S on a variety of sustainability roles. Her current focus is on M&S raw materials and capacity building within the foods supply chain and associated communities.

Hazel manages a number of stakeholder partnerships to help deliver successful programmes on the ground and is lucky enough to spend a lot of time with producers and has visited producers all over the world. Prior to this role, Hazel worked as Ethical Trading Manager for M&S Foods developing close relationships with suppliers, managing the HR supplier exchange programme and developing the award winning Ethical Framework.

Prior to work at Marks & Spencer Hazel worked for two-and-a-half years as Business Development Manager at Sedex and for five years as a buyer for Sainsburys.
