Amrit Ghose joins Thames Estuary Partnership’s Board of Trustees
Waterman are pleased to see Amrit Ghose joining the Board of Trustees for the Thames Estuary Partnership (TEP), a non-campaigning, charitable organisation that promotes sustainable management of the River Thames and connects its people and ideas to create economic and environmental improvements.
TEP has a network of over 4,000 stakeholders, including the Corporation of London, University College London, the Environment Agency, the Ports of London Authority, Natural England, Thames Water and Essex County Council. Amrit Ghose will be joining core members to research and promote more sustainable developments, in addition to briefing developers and stakeholders on blue-green infrastructure that enables a thriving working river.
The Trust is also involved in hosting networking events across the year to discuss current issues and development on the Thames, the last being their Summer event at the Houses of Parliament on 8 July, which welcomes over 250 representatives from the construction, maritime, environment, infrastructure, sustainability and government sectors.
As a Trustee, Amrit has volunteered to join the organising committee for the TEP Annual Forum in November, a one-day event that brings together the most influential speakers and audiences from diverse fields related to the Thames Estuary as they discuss the challenges around climate change, plastic pollution and reduction policies, transportation and critical infrastructure. Last year’s keynote speech was given by Sir John Armitt, Chair of the National Infrastructure Commission.
Amrit commented of his latest appointment; “I am proud to have joined the Board to advise TEP on their sustainability management. As a Chartered Engineer and Chartered Environmentalist, I passionately share the Trust’s aims to drive social, economic and environmental improvement in the Thames Estuary.”
