Cambridge MBA alumnus David Elliott, CEO of Trees for Cities, named as commissioner to the London Sustainable Development Commission by the city’s mayor.
An alumnus of the Cambridge MBA programme, David Elliott (MBA 2008), has been appointed as one of 10 new commissioners to the London Sustainable Development Commission (LSDC). The announcement was made by London Mayor Sadiq Khan.
David is Chief Executive of Trees for Cities, a charity that operates internationally to create greener cities. He is also an adviser for the Forestry Commission’s Forest and Woodlands Advisory Committee for London, and has been a trustee of the International Tree Foundation and the African Conservation Foundation.
The LDSC was set up in 2002 to advise the Mayor of London on sustainability issues, in order to help the city meet the challenges of a fast-growing population including climate change and rising inequality.
“We’ve selected the very best from across London’s diverse sustainability sector to join the new-look commission and help ensure that our world-class city is a sustainable one: now and in the future,” said Sadiq Khan.
