Tom Delay is chief executive of the Carbon Trust – the first to be appointed to the organisation in 2001. Since then, he has grown the organisation to become a world leader in advising businesses, governments and the public sector on carbon emissions reduction and the development of low-carbon technologies, markets and businesses. Tom chairs Partnerships for Renewables, a Carbon Trust Enterprise that develops wind farms on public land, and is a member of the UK Energy Research Partnership. A chartered engineer, Tom began his career with Shell, working for 16 years in commercial and operations roles including four years as general manager of Pizo Shell – a subsidiary in Gabon. He moved into management consultancy with McKinsey and then as a principal with the Global Energy Practice of A.T. Kearney before joining the Carbon Trust. Tom gained a first class honours degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Southampton in 1981 and completed an MBA, with distinction, at INSEAD, in 1988.
Climate change has placed a premium on moving to sustainable business models and a low-carbon economy. The task will need “positivity of purpose“ and “informed assessment“ of climate risks, writes Tom Delay of the Carbon Trust.
