Georgia Elliott-Smith

Managing Director of Sustainability Consultancy, Element Four, and UNESCO Special Junior Envoy for Youth & the Environment

An environmental engineer with 25 years’ experience in the construction and property sector, Georgia helps public and private sector clients to understand and apply sustainability principles, creating more environmentally- and socially-responsible buildings and organisations.

She is at the vanguard of the healthy buildings movement with more Fitwel-certified projects than any other consultant in Europe. A critic of traditional approaches, Georgia promotes “disruptive sustainability” – a combination of best practice and activism that generates purpose and drives the changes necessary to achieve positive change in industry. Georgia is currently challenging the UK government in the high court over failure of national policies to reduce industrial carbon emissions.
