Beth Simpson

Principal Consultant - Plastics & Recycling Specialist, UK

Beth has over 17 years experience in the resource management sector and is an accomplished project manager with a proven ability to run multi-disciplinary teams and politically sensitive projects to deliver high quality outcomes in line with clients’ needs.

Beth has deep practical knowledge and experience of downstream recycling, which has been built up during ten years working with local authorities and waste contractors on all aspects of their recycling services. She has provided clients support with designing and implementing new recycling collection services, developing and running citizen communication and behaviour changes programmes and review service performance data.

Beth now applies this knowledge of the downstream recycling supply chain to support clients on all aspects of sustainable packaging, with a particular focus on plastics. Beth is also one of our lead waste material flow and economic modellers. She builds models that represent complex scenarios (e.g. Deposit Return Schemes or national infrastructure options) that enable clients to make strategic business decisions or respond to pending policy changes.

Beth works with a wide range of clients including FMCG brands, trade bodies, pharmaceuticals, retailers, waste collection contractors and local government.
