Graeme Heyes

Graeme joined CATE in April of 2012 to begin his PhD in the area of airport retail and specifically the environmental impacts of this robust and growing sector. Graeme has a strong history of academic study in the Environment, with an undergraduate degree in Environmental Science awarded by the University of Leeds, and a distinction graded Masters Degree in Environmental Management and Sustainable Development, awarded by Manchester Metropolitan University. The later qualification saw Graeme work in partnership with The Football League Trust, Business in the Community, and The Environment Agency to identify the current best environmental practice found in the English Football Leagues, as well as identifying how the sector may move towards a vision of environmental sustainability.

Supplementing his academic background, Graeme has experience of working in a number of environmental roles for organisations such as Groundwork, the NUS, and more recently Keep Britain Tidy, where he was responsible for the organisations environmental commitments, as well as project managing a range of projects for external clients.

Graeme hopes to be able to make a significant contribution to the challenge of climate change and the idea of sustainable development over his career and is due to complete his thesis in 2015.
