With a progressive career in Sustainability thought leadership spanning over 20 years, Ruth joined the Acclaro team in January 2023 to lead and support Acclaro’s clients in their transition towards net zero – helping to build and enhance strategic pathways and compelling cases for change that support decarbonisation and emissions reductions programs at pace and scale.

Having worked across EMEA in both public and private sectors has taught Ruth to apply an ‘exponential‘ way of thinking in sustainability which has led to developing and delivering impactful sustainability-led strategies often against changing priorities and budget constraints.

Combining detailed climate knowledge with practical business acumen, Ruth has delivered with success a broad spectrum of technical and innovative projects including large multi-stakeholder programs in corporate sustainability and social responsibility, specifically in the infrastructure industry (built environment, utilities and transport).

Former Head of Sustainability at Siemens, Irish Water, HS2, and National Express Group, Ruth is committed to integrate Environmental and Social impacts for value, growth and profitability.

Passionate about the necessary role of Nature Based solutions for achieving a Net-Zero and a Nature positive future, Ruth is looking forward to leverage her own experience and the teams at Acclaro in helping its clients accelerating their net zero goals and beyond.

A team player and leader Ruth looks to inspire and challenges other to achieve their potential.

When out of the work environment Ruth loves all things outdoor related and is at her happiest above or below water.
