Tara James

Senior Consultant, Melbourne
Specialisms:
I have gained a broad range of experience in my time in the corporate responsibility and sustainability fields, both in Australia and the UK. I have specific in-depth experience in sustainability reporting and assurance, stakeholder engagement and investor-facing indices such as DJSI and MSCI.

Background:
A chartered Environmental Engineer by trade, my professional career has tracked a course through sustainable water management and design, including for the London 2012 Olympics, to the broader remit of corporate social responsibility and sustainability. I have spent over eight years in the CSR/sustainability space in both consulting and in-house roles, including as CR Manager at Royal Mail Group through its transition from a government-owned entity to a publicly listed company.

Client and Project Experience:
My experience covers a broad range of CSR issues including community and environmental projects, reporting and assurance, benchmarking, materiality assessments and impact assessments. My client relationships have included companies from Royal Mail Group and BT to Lloyds Banking Group and IFM Investors.

Person I most admire:
A handful of people I have encountered that leave me speechless with wonder at the amount they are willing to give of themselves to assist those in need, for no return.
