Charlie brings a range of skills and experience to the NewForesight team and excels with his critical thinking and holistic, data-driven approach to supply chain problems. At NewForesight, he works primarily on impact investing and data analytics.

Charlie is passionate about people and planet – aiming to raise the standard of living for people around the world without having a greater impact on the world. Charlie graduated from the University of Glasgow with honours in Environmental Science & Sustainability (BsC) where he developed in-depth knowledge of the natural world and the human activities  that are disrupting ecosystems and their services. With an understanding of the interplay between the natural world and human impacts on the world, Charlie continued his education with a Master of Science (Cum Laude) in International Development Studies from the University of Amsterdam through which he developed an appreciation of the need to address societal concerns through sustainable, market-based solutions.

Prior to joining NewForesight, Charlie worked as an analyst in the impact investing space focusing on mobilizing capital to address tropical  deforestation in agricultural supply chains. He also spent three years working in Indonesia for the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) on knowledge and communications to develop research insights and communicate them effectively.
