Matt Batey – Associate

A natural problem-solver, Matt turned from the world of mathematics to finding solutions to today’s environmental challenges. Through an MSc in Environmental Science, Policy and Planning and eco-activist adventures as a Greenpeace volunteer, Matt has built a career dedicated to developing business, policy and infrastructure solutions to tackle climate change. An ongoing PhD on how to change the world by influencing behaviour drew him into the world of marketing and communications.

Matt now works on the circular and bioeconomies, supporting Sustainability Consult and its clients in understanding emerging markets and how credible communications can lead the transition to a low carbon future.

For this, he draws on 20 years’ experience of pushing green innovations into everyday existence. From reclaiming contaminated lands in Australia – while simultaneously minding a kangaroo or two, to promoting resource-efficiency through the sharing economy – Matt has worked across a broad range of sustainability initiatives.

While he enjoys many creative and sporting pursuits, in recent years these have been displaced by two charming but demanding toddlers. Matt’s favourite activity now is catching up on sleep!
