We caught up with Timmy for details on his professional journey, and for an introduction to the issues addressed in his forthcoming panel debate at #RISK Digital.

Could you briefly outline your career pathway so far? 

I initially studied Environmental Chemistry before starting a role in Micro Bio carrying out Environmental Chemistry testing. I then progressed to wider EHS&S with Cambrex, an API manufacturer, before moving on to a quality and EHS&S leadership role in the oil industry.

My career then pivoted to EHS&S in Biopharamceuticals with Pfizer before some time working with GE in EHS&S in EUMEA. Over the past years, I have worked in Biopharmaceuticals again (with BioMarin) and have held various EHS&S leadership positions before pivoting to Global Environmental Sustainability in more recent years.

What primary drivers have pushed ESG up the priority list as part of current business growth strategies? 

There are a number of factors here, including companies having progressive ESG policies and priorities; increasing ESG regulation globally; interest from employees and shareholders and volatility, and uncertainty over oil and gas with recent global conflict and geopolitical instability.

What role does ESG now play in creating value and financial performance? 

ESG creates value in a number of ways – staff like to work for companies with progressive ESG cultural values and this can be a real differentiator in the labour market. Having progressive ESG policies can ensure freedom to operate by ensuring that companies stay ahead of increasing global regulation in ESG. Furthermore, increasingly more shareholder groups have an interest in investing in companies with progressive ESG policies.
