Mark Maslin appointment

Professor Mark Maslin has joined Lansons|Team Farner as its first expert in residence, enhancing the agency’s capabilities and providing a science-first approach to sustainability strategies and communications.

Mark is Professor of Earth System Science at University College London (UCL), where he leads the COP delegations, and is a leading commentator on climate and sustainability issues in the UK and overseas. Mark brings a wealth of expertise and experience, both as a leading scientist in the climate change arena and as an advisor to large businesses.

Mark has authored 10 books, including Penguin-published How to save our planet: The Facts. He has also co-authored a number of reports, including The Lancet’s most recent Countdown on health and climate change and A short history of the successes and failures of international climate change negotiations alongside The Guardian’s Fiona Harvey. Mark is also a member of the Climate Crisis Advisory Group led by Sir David King.

At Lansons, Mark will work alongside our Sustainability Lead, Sam Sharpe, to advise on a science-first approach to an organisations’ sustainability ambitions.

“The private sector is central to tackling the climate and biodiversity crisis. They present business with major challenges but also massive opportunities. I take incredibly seriously any opportunity to help shape and push corporate awareness, understanding and ambition regarding these global crisis."

We’re determined to help all our clients, including the hard to abate sectors, stretch ambitions in the most effective ways and take confidence and pride in how those ambitions are articulated.

This timing also marks the launch of our Green Government Workshops, which prepares businesses ahead of next year’s general election and what could possibly be our greenest government yet.

We are committed to operating sustainably as a business and setting an industry leading example. Just last month, we won PRCA’s Sustainability Agency of the Year for a second consecutive year, winning also in 2022 when the award was first launched.
