Dr Harris will be central to advancing Galbraith’s mission to realise value in all land uses, assessing and measuring natural assets and their contribution to ecosystem services, furthering opportunities in biodiversity net gain, and ensuring stakeholders are rewarded for their investment and contribution to sustainable land management.

“The UK’s net-zero commitment underpins the growing importance of assets such as geology, soil, air, water, food, timber and all forms of wildlife in fighting climate change and safeguarding the environment,” said Dr Harris. “I am glad to be joining a team that’s long put concern for the environment into practice and is committed to making the most of new opportunities.”

Dr Harris was, until recently, chief policy researcher for Confor, where she worked with landowners and other stakeholders in environmental land management.
