Neliswa moved to the UK in 2021. Arriving in the middle of the pandemic during a particularly cold Februay, she felt worlds away from South Africa. Now settled in Farnham, she enjoys long walks and, through the ‘Making Britain Green’ initiative, she has planted trees in her local community.
Living in the UK, she loves how, when compared to South Africa, simple things like recycling are made so easy. “You can make a simple choice to do one thing differently and you feel like you’re making an impact. That’s very important. For example, we have just decided to buy an electric vehicle.”
Moving to the UK when she did meant that Neliswa joined our ESG Advisory just before COP26. “I feel so lucky that I now have this awesome opportunity to work with the UN Climate Champions on their “Race to Resilience” campaign. I’m double-hatting – campaign manager and business engagement lead.”
