Lucy Barrett, Environmental Management Assistant from Stockport Homes was recently named runner up at a  national award ceremony in London, for the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA) Graduate of the Year. 

This was in recognition of Lucy’s work on the research for a collaborative waste management framework for Stockport Homes. Through her environmental research, engagement and communication skills Lucy successfully implemented innovative and creative approaches to managing and reducing waste in Stockport Homes’ neighbourhoods.    

Speaking of the award Lucy said “I was delighted to be named runner up. I am so passionate about my career working in the environment and it’s great to achieve such prestigious recognition from the IEMA. 

Joe Keating, Environmental Energy Manager at Stockport  Homes added “I am really proud of Lucy’s achievements. She joined us as a shy, inexperienced student whilst studying for a MSc in Environmental Management and Sustainable Development. She has progressed exceptionally into the role. She was also heavily involved in procuring a new waste contractor which is expected to reduce expenditure on waste by fifty per cent. Well done Lucy!”
