ECCI Deputy Director joins WWF Scotland Advisory Council

ECCI Deputy Director and Head of Innovation and Enterprise Ed Craig today takes up a post on the Advisory Council of leading environmental charity WWF Scotland.

As a member of the Council, he will focus on raising the profile and increasing the impact of WWF Scotland’s work and the wider WWF network, drawing on his experience and expertise to provide advice, scrutiny and accountability.

Ed will work alongside Chair Gordon McGregor, David Walker, Director, Private Equity at BMO Global Asset Management (EMEA), Dr Aileen McLeod, ex-MSP and Minister and Lucia Kirchner, Ethical Trading Co-ordinator at Primark.

As part of WWF-UK, the charity contributes to the success of the global WWF network which is active in more than 100 countries and boasts over five million supporters and works on securing policy solutions to the challenges of tackling climate change, securing a renewable energy future and protecting the marine environment.

This latest link with WWF Scotland is a further boost to ECCI’s vibrant low carbon networks, which connect people in Scotland and internationally with innovators and decision-makers working at the cutting edge of low carbon policy, business and research.

Ed Craig said:

“It’s a huge privilege to be joining the Advisory Council of WWF Scotland.

“WWF is one of the country’s leading environmental charities and like ECCI is committed to working with people from government, academia, business and communities to create a thriving zero carbon world.

“I’m looking forward to learning from its ground-breaking work and sharing ECCI’s knowledge and insights about how we can change the game on climate.”

Welcoming the new Council members, Acting Director of WWF Scotland Dr Sam Gardner said:

“I’m delighted to welcome four such talented members to our Advisory Council.

"Their experience will prove invaluable in helping WWF Scotland reach our goal to create a world where people and nature thrive.

"To make this a reality we need the best ideas and solutions, working with the Advisory Council will allow us to continue testing and improving our approach to the environmental challenges facing our planet."
