Get your questions in!
I’m delighted to announce our upcoming ‘Ask My Anything’ event with OVO Energy’s Director of Sustainability, Rebecca Heaton. RSVP to this event here:
Here’s a little bit about Rebecca:
What did you do before OVO and how did you get where you are today?
“My whole career has been about climate change – making choices on where I could make the most impact. For example, I sat on the UK Climate Change Committee (CCC), setting the framework for the UK’s net zero target and advising the government on how to get there.
“I’m also a forester by training – I’m a forestry graduate and a fellow of the institute of chartered foresters. Most of my roles have been focused on how land use, trees and climate change interact from a business perspective. A big attraction for joining OVO was that the company is already doing things in that space and using trees to help meet our objectives.”
Can you tell us a bit about your role at OVO and what you’ll be doing?
“I’m the Director of Sustainability at OVO. So, I inherited the fantastic Plan Zero, which is embedded across everything the company does. My job is to look at how we’re going to deliver Plan Zero, meet those targets and embed it even further into the company.”
What sort of subjects are you hoping to discuss in the Forum AMA event?
“I’m still very new to OVO, having joined in August of this year, so I won’t be best placed to discuss specifics around OVO’s products, services or historic strategy.
As I mentioned earlier my career has been dedicated to issues around climate change, so I’m well placed to share my experience and opinions around this. COP 26, Plan Zero, the UKs energy transition plans, climate solutions and carbon reduction. I’ll happily discuss these important subjects and answer any questions as best I can. I’m looking forward to it!”
We’re really excited to have Rebecca joining us for this one. Not to be missed!
Please submit some questions that you have for Rebecca in the comments section below, and we can use these as a template to structure the event.
See you all there at 16:30 on October the 13th
