Here's The Team - Calum

This week we’ll be focusing on our Sustainability & Compliance Manager, Calum McErlane, and providing a little insight into their everyday at Here’s The Plan.

What is an average day in your role?

As a sustainability and compliance manager, my days can vary greatly depending on the most important task at hand. However, on an average day, my focus is on providing Sustainability and Compliance solutions to our current and potential client base. These can range from conducting carbon reports, assisting customers with their packaging waste obligations, providing energy efficiency solutions, and Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) consultancy. Additionally, in the short time I have been in the business, I have attended workshops on leadership and Achieving Net Zero through Innovative and Circular Design, as well as running one myself with a colleague about how to make your business more sustainable.

What do you love most about what you do?

The most enjoyable part of my role is the autonomy and variety. I’ve been with Here’s The Plan for the best part of 3 months, and I’ve had to get up to speed with a wide range of services I’m responsible for. Already I have been given free rein to handle the approach to new packaging regulations and what service offerings we could deliver.

Tell us a surprising or fun fact about you.

I've been practising meditation and mindfulness for several years now. It's helped me to stay focused and calm, even in stressful situations.
