WA Leader – decarbonisation and climate risk
Amy is currently the head of office and global subject lead for Climate risk and Adaptation at Engie Impact. Her career has delved deep into both mitigation and adaptation over the least decade.
On the mitigation side she has undertaken numerous projects exploring both an energy optimised mix to decarbonisation and the pathway required to maintain a safe and habitable climate at either a site, city, country or regional level. On the adaptation side Amy has led the development of a suite of tools to understand, model and quantify the financial impact from a changing climate on site-specific operations.
Amy is immensely passionate about climate change, and reducing emissions rapidly to protect the health of ecosystems which she takes great joy from – like coral reefs and snow-covered mountains. This had led to volunteer advocacy work for groups like Sports Environment Alliance and Front Runners as well as the global group EcoAthletes.
On a research side Amy’s master’s worked with the Wudjari Noongar people in Southern Western Australia to explore the interrelationship between fire management techiniques, catastrophic fire risk and the changing climate. Amy hopes to continue this research.
