Rebecca Johnson

In-house Sustainability Manager Consultant Location: Spain Years experience in sustainable event practice: 5 Email: sustainability.mgmt (at) gmail.com LinkedIN: https://www.linkedin.com/in/rebeccalouisejohnson/ Details of experience: I have been working in Events for all of my professional life and began working in sustainability in events in 2015. Initially, my involvement began as research for my employer, but once I started to learn more about sustainability I became very interested in the subject in general, and the potential of every individual to reduce his/her negative impact on the environment. Soon after I was assigned ISO 20121 implementation for my company, and later became the Sustainability Manager. I love the events and tourism sector so it makes sense for me to apply my knowledge in sustainability to this area. In my role I have implemented a sustainability strategy within my organisation in 3 different countries; that alone was challenging due to the different cultures and ways of working in each market. I am also interested in sustainability in tourism and how destinations and local entities can contribute towards reducing negative impact and creating a positive legacy. Currently I am working as a Sustainability Consultant on various different projects; teaching, training, auditing and communication.
