Member of the Chapter Zero Board, Rosemary Boot is a non-executive director of Impact Healthcare REIT plc, Urban&Civic plc, Triple Point Energy Efficiency Infrastructure Company plc, and Southern Water Services Limited. She is also a Trustee of Green Alliance, the environmental think tank.
Rosemary was the chief financial officer of Future Cities Catapult, one of a network of technology and innovation centres established by the UK Government. She has also worked at Circle Housing Group and was involved in setting up the government-owned Low Carbon Contracts Company and Electricity Settlements Company. From 2001 to 2011 she was group finance director of the Carbon Trust, and prior to that, she worked for 16 years as an investment banker primarily advising large listed UK companies on mergers and acquisitions.
Rosemary has been actively involved in raising business awareness and response to the challenges and opportunities of climate change since she joined the Carbon Trust in 2001. She has been working with Julie Baddeley on Board, and specifically non-executive director, awareness and engagement (now called Chapter Zero) for the last four years.
I am proud to have been involved in setting up Chapter Zero and that we are developing a valuable network for NEDs – providing events and support from excellent partners to ensure that Boards are well positioned to give serious consideration to the challenges and opportunities of climate change for their businesses.
