New environment and energy manager for Greater Anglia

Greater Anglia has appointed Stephanie Evans to be its new environment and energy manager. She joins from two universities and facilities management firm NORSE, where she worked in environment management roles.

Matt Wakefield, Greater Anglia’s Head of Safety, Security and Sustainability, said: “We’re thrilled to welcome Steph on board at such an exciting time. We are in the process of replacing every single train in our fleet with a brand new one. Travelling by train can take thousands of cars off the roads and the new trains are better for the environment and save energy.

“We care about the environment, and we are delivering a number of projects to improve our energy-efficiency and operate in a more sustainable manner – from installing LED lighting, to providing free water fountains at some stations, to providing free electric car charging points.”

Stephanie said: “I am very pleased to be joining Greater Anglia at such an important time. Sustainability, climate change and protecting the environment are more important than ever before and I am looking forward to building on the great work which is already underway at stations, depots, offices and on trains. “I want to increase awareness of all environment issues and make sure all staff are aware of how they can play their part. We already recycle a great deal of waste, but I hope to look at new ideas such as recycling food waste, and how we can really all make a difference. The environment is at the heart of everything we do.”
