The speaker for this webinar is Liz Harding-Wyatt, Green Kitchen Standard Award Manager with the Soil Association.

Following a degree in Environmental Management, Liz has worked for the Soil Association since 2007. Liz has worked in various roles, such as supporting businesses in gaining organic certification, working with school cooks to improve school lunchtimes, and is now the manager for the newly launched Green Kitchen Standard, a joint certification by Soil Association Certification and the Carbon Trust, which recognises caterers that have taken positive steps to sustainably manage energy, waste and water.
