Who would have thought that driving a vintage supercar reduces your carbon footprint. In fact, Lunaz is saving tonnes of embedded carbon every year with the creation of the Upcycled Electric Vehicle. How, you ask? Here’s actor and comedian Jack Whitehall with the lowdown (yes, really).

Lunaz isn’t the only Buckinghamshire business with sustainability at its core. Our county is home to several organisations striving to slow down the effects of climate change, which presents plenty of opportunities for you to embark on a green career. Eco warriors, assemble!

Responsible Events

Transport emissions, unrecyclable decorations, energy consumption… There’s no denying the environmental consequences of in-person events, but Responsible Events has a solution. The Milton Keynes-based sustainability consultancy helps event organisers reduce their environmental, economic and social impacts by providing the necessary skills and experience to deliver brilliant virtual events.

Associated careers: Event Planner, Software Engineer and Sales Manager

EKFB

All aboard the train to a greener future! EKFB brings together several international civil engineering and construction companies – Eiffage, Kier, Ferrovial Construction and BAM Nuttall – for the design, construction, operation and maintenance of railway networks, including HS2. By linking the Chiltern Tunnel with Long Itchington Wood in South Warwickshire, EKFB has brought one of the most sustainable railways of its type in the world to the area.

Associated careers: Civil Engineer, Sustainability Coordinator, Engagement Manager and Health and Safety Advisor

Buckinghamshire Council

As the body responsible for our county’s vital services, Buckinghamshire Council has a Environmental Health, Sustainability & Resilience Services department dedicated to managing the effects of climate change. This includes looking after green spaces and the wildlife that lives there, managing flood risk and helping other departments make sustainable decisions. 

Associated careers: Country Parks Ranger, Conservation Officer and Climate Change Officer
