Adam specialises in biodiversity assessment, conservation and management and has consulted on large scale ESIA projects and managed biodiversity related projects. He has led offset and mitigation design, working with clients to achieve biodiversity net gain in a variety of contexts, including preparing specialist action plans for threatened species and habitats. He has designed and implemented biodiversity surveys and been involved in environmental due diligence. Working to a range of international standards, including the IFC performance standards, he has helped to develop robust assessment methodologies designed to meet the most recent guidance.
During his time at Earth Active, Adam has worked across the world on a wide variety of projects, varying from large scale linear infrastructure (roads, railways, transmission lines), to renewable energy developments, to protected areas. Adam led the development of a corporate biodiversity strategy for a large international firm, in which the team designed a roadmap to enhance company biodiversity management. He is also interested in the interface between biodiversity and carbon accounting and offsetting, leading projects to calculate the carbon stored in natural habitats.
Adam specialised in Ecology at Oxford University, and brings a strong technical knowledge to his work at Earth Active. He is also competent in geographic information systems (GIS), especially in an ecological context, but he also utilises these skills more broadly to support other environmental and social work.
In his spare time Adam is a keen horse rider. He also enjoys walking in the outdoors, where he attempts to photograph wildlife with varying levels of success.
