James Cadman heads up Action Sustainability’s consultancy team. He has worked in sustainable procurement and product sustainability for more than 15 years, having worked at AEA Technology and ERM prior to Action Sustainability. James’ work is focused on understanding the sustainability impacts that products have through their life cycles and applying that to supply chain sustainability initiatives. He has led many projects on developing sustainable procurement policies, devising product standards and guidance, and undertaking carbon footprinting studies in order to improve product and market sustainability performance. Past clients include the likes of Network Rail, Unilever, Tesco, IKEA, Vodafone, and Defra.
James was inspired to have a career in sustainability following the Bhopal and Exxon Valdez disasters, among other high-profile incidents, to the point of undertaking a PhD where he researched methods for removing industrial pollution from water. He has been passionate ever since about environmental issues and can often be found ‘urban guerrilla’ tree planting around Oxfordshire. James is fluent in German and is also a Trustee for his local allotment association where he enjoys growing his own veg – local, organic and fair trade!
