THE Green Action Trust (GATrust), the trusted delivery partner focussed on environmental and regeneration outcomes for Scotland has welcomed two new trustees.
The appointment of Pauline Silverman and Ben Westland to the Board of charity trustees will support GATrust in its activities throughout 2021, continuing to meet Scotland’s environmental challenges.
Pauline Silverman is currently Head of Partnerships at the Scottish Environment Protection Agency. She leads an ambitious multi-partnership project to completely transform the neglected areas surrounding the River Leven in mid-Fife, making it into one of Scotland’s most connected and sustainable places.
Ben Westland is a self-employed business consultant working with organisations in the private, public and third sectors throughout the UK, in a 20-year career spanning economic development, project, innovation and operations management.
Stuart Tait, Chairman of the Green Action Trust, said:
“We are delighted to have two individuals of the calibre of Pauline and Ben join our organisation. Having recently come through a very successful and significant period of strategic change, they will be a great addition to our hard-working Board in support of our ambitions to do more to address the climate change challenges that face Scotland. There is no doubt that their business experience will help us enormously.”
Derek Robertson, Chief Executive of the Green Action Trust, said:
“This strengthening of our board is a great boost to the Green Action Trust. It is an important part of our overall plan to be the trusted delivery partner for government, local authorities and commercial businesses looking to make a positive contribution to Scotland’s green recovery and meet our nation’s ambitious climate change objectives.”
