Rita Sampainho

Senior Environmental Researcher, London
Specialisms:
I specialise in environmental services at Corporate Citizenship working across a range of areas including, GHG emissions verification, assurance and carbon foot printing. I am particularly interested in helping companies to manage their environmental impacts and in understanding how managing such impacts can lead to sustainable development.

Background:
Prior to joining Corporate Citizenship I worked as a researcher at the Institute for the Environment, Health and Societies at Brunel University and as a Carbon Data Analyst at Environmental Investment Organisation. I hold an MSc in Environmental Technology from Imperial College London, where I specialised in Health and Global Environment. During the thesis term, I spent three months in Mozambique researching different ways of delivering climate resilient sanitation to urban informal settlements, including the setting up of public-private-people partnerships as well as micro-finance schemes.

Client & Project experience:
I work with a range of clients, including Abbott, Hiscox and GoAhead Group.

Person I most admire:
Jose Mujica, the world’s poorest and most humble president.
