Following a career in consumer goods R&D and sustainability-led technologies, Siobhan joined Deloitte last year to lead our Climate Change and Environment Studio within Deloitte Ventures. “My team and I work with our clients, alliance partners, start-ups and internal teams to come up with innovative solutions to build prosperity for people and planet,” she explains.
And she’s had a busy first year. Her current portfolio includes exciting projects on climate justice, wildlife conservation, circular economy, smart agriculture, decarbonisation and smart energy systems, amongst others.
So what’s the latest in climate and tech?
“There’s been a lot of excitement around how to leverage space technologies to accelerate climate action,” she says. “For example, we’ve been exploring how to use satellite imagery to track and protect the health of our planet’s mangroves and seagrass meadows. These are critical ecosystems in the fight against climate change due to their ability to capture even more carbon than rainforests.”
