"Carol worked with our officers and members to undertake a sustainability appraisal using the ‘5 capitals framework’. The results were well presented; it was a very useful and informative initiative and we still draw on its approach and findings. Carol’s in depth knowledge of sustainability was of great benefit in guiding the appraisal process.”
