  • Bold plans for BWT’s Sustainability Agenda

    Published 18/05/23

    Our new Head of Estates and Sustainability, David McInally, is a qualified and passionate environmentalist. He lives in a fully insulated, low-energy house (that he retro-fitted himself) so his passion for the environment is both professional and personal.

    He is qualified in Facilities Management, Health & Safety and Environmental Management and is a chartered member of IOSH.

    With this impressive educational background and his 20 years of experience in the public sector, he is well-equipped for his new role here at Brooke Weston Trust.

The Department of Education has an even more ambitious deadline of 2030 for this very same goal, so David and his teams across the Trust have a huge challenge ahead of them.

    We spoke to him to find out more…
