Climate action NGO, WRAP, has confirmed the appointment of Harriet Lamb as its new CEO.
Lamb (pictured left) is an experienced CEO including having built the global movement Fairtrade, which fights for better conditions and fair prices for smallholder farmers and workers across the developing world.
She said, “I am thrilled to be joining the team at WRAP given their impressive track record of finding solutions, bringing partners together and dialling up the impact. I look forward to scaling WRAP’s respected programmes tackling the issues of waste, carbon and water while promoting the circular economy. We can be at the forefront of making the good life, everyone’s life. It’s an enormous opportunity to unite the public, businesses and governments behind tackling climate change head-on.”
WRAP’s Chair, Sebastian Munden, said, “Appointing a CEO is one of the most important things a Chair and Trustee board do, and we are incredibly excited that Harriet is joining us. She brings a wealth of experience at CEO level and has demonstrated across her career so far that she can bring people together to scale positive change. Our purpose at WRAP is to tackle climate change and protect our planet by changing the way things are produced, consumed and disposed of. To bring this about we need to increase our reach and the practical support we can give stakeholders like governments and businesses, internationally and in the UK, to achieve their sustainability goals. I have every confidence that Harriet’s appointment will accelerate our impact.”
