πŸ’«  Meet The Team - Remy Leaf

What inspired you to work in the decarbonising business?

When I was about 10 years old I saw a segment on CBBC's Newsround about Greenhouse gases and global warming. It inspired me to learn more about the issue and what could be done to avoid it. Ultimately leading me to get an undergrad degree in Environmental Management & Sustainability at UWE in Bristol. I graduated way back in 2007 and have tried to dedicate my career to the challenge ever since

What do you enjoy most about your role at Zevero?

The sheer variety of things I get to work on and provide input on. I also love connecting with companies to understand if Zevero can help support their climate action plans. The biscuits at our London office are a close 2nd.

Tell us one small thing that makes your day better.

Blowing a raspberry at my 6 month old son (Ace) and getting a big giggle and a smile back. There's no replacement for the unfiltered joy of a baby :)

What’s your favourite quote?

"If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail" Benjamin Franklin

If you had to recommend one thing to read, watch or listen to, what would it be?

The most memorable book of recent years I have read is Ducks, Newburyport by Lucy Ellman. It's 1,000 pages and the whole book is one long sentence, it's a literary tour de force. I always read the winning book of the Goldsmith's prize each year which is awarded to authors who "break the mould or extend the possibilities of the novel form."

What was your first job?

I was raised in a small seaside town in Dorset and did a myriad of part time jobs growing up. My very first was probably a paper round. I started every day at 630am before school and rode my bike around the town delivering newspapers. The Saturday supplements nearly broke my back :/

Where can we find you on a Sunday morning?

Recently it has been in my local swimming pool with Ace getting him used to the water. He is in a class called Turtle Tots, it's so much fun

What would be your specialist Mastermind subject?

I am a huge fan of the rock band, Placebo, I know their back catalogue incredibly well.

Your favourite Zevero project so far?

There's so many! If I had to pick one it's probably providing input on our new website which will be hitting your browsers soon (you heard it here first!).
