Sally Uren joined Forum for the Future in 2002 and currently oversees Forum's partnerships in both the UK and globally, as well as Forum’s networks and communication activities. Much of Sally's work involves working with leading global businesses, such as Unilever, M&S and PepsiCo, unlocking the opportunity agenda presented by sustainable development. She is particularly interested in mainstreaming sustainability into core business activities to create new, sustainable business models. Sally has particular expertise in the retail and food sectors and regularly works across these sectors to create a shared understanding of sustainability challenges and to create solutions. Recent projects include Dairy 2020 – a vision and framework for a sustainable UK dairy sector, involving over 40 organisations across the supply chain. She is also passionate about the potentially transformative role of brands in creating a more sustainable future and authored Forum’s recent Consumer Futures 2020 study. She is a member of Sustainable Brands Advisory Board and speaks regularly at national and international conferences. Sally is Chair of Kingfisher plc’s Independent Stakeholder Panel, a Panel Member of the UK’s Green Energy Supply Certification Scheme and an independent member of The Carbon Neutral Company’s Technical Advisory Board. She is also Chair of the Advisory Committee overseeing Forum for the Future’s growing operations in the US. Prior to joining the Forum, Sally founded and directed the Sustainability Group at private consultancy Casella Stanger (now owned by Bureau Veritas). Sally completed a post doctorate research fellowship funded by DfID (then the ODA) in optimal nutrient regimes for encouraging the regeneration of logged rainforest in Borneo. She also completed a PhD at Imperial College on the impacts of nitrogenous deposition on semi-natural ecosystems.
