Executive Director – Sustainable Certifications Group (SCG)
Tim is the Executive Director of Sustainable Certifications Group where he leads the commercialisation of a range of sustainability assurance schemes for products being developed within the plastics industry and wider recycling sector.
A new certification scheme for “Sustainably Sourced Plastic” is currently being launched by SCG. This certification is designed to independently certify recycled content in plastic packaging in preparation for the plastic packaging tax to be introduced in the UK from April 2021. The certification incorporates a new standard allowing the determination of recycled content in a plastic product. This standard is currently being developed by BSI for publication in March 2022.
Tim has recently joined SCG and has been instrumental in the development of plastics recycling in Scotland over the past ten years. Whilst acting as sector manager for reprocessing at Zero Waste Scotland, a number of impactful projects have been supported through network connections and in some cases grant funding, including supporting the early development of the BOSS system and Project Beacon.
Tim is a chartered member of CIWM and holds a master’s degree in Environmental Management for Business from Cranfield University.

As Policy advisor Louisa provides key support to our team, including preparing reports on environmental policy issues and maintaining awareness of new developments. As such she will often be found coordinating responses to policy consultations, advocating policy positions and providing internal guidance to current legislation.

Louisa’s interest in policy research and analysis was ignited during higher education. After completing an Environmental sustainability degree at the University of Leeds Louisa undertook a research Masters in Sustainability at the University of Bristol that included a dissertation on international forestry policy frameworks.

She has previously worked in the research department for a healthcare research charity where she helped to coordinate responses to national surveys and she also completed a communications internship with a charity undertaking reforestation projects in 2017.

When she is not absorbed in the wonderful world of producer responsibility policy developments, Louisa can often be found enjoying a good book and she has a love of travelling, festivals and going to the theatre. She also enjoys running and often volunteers with Oxfam at the weekends.
