Faye Scott

head of research

Faye is responsible for the development of Green Alliance’s research projects, providing detailed content for our specialist policy themes and developing strategic new areas of work.

She continues to lead Green Alliance’s work on the localism agenda, planning reform and what it means for environmental action, contributing to relevant debates and media.

Faye also has expertise on the challenge of mainstreaming climate change action across civil society. In 2009-10 she acted as the secretariat, and drafted the report, of the joint ministerial and third sector task force, which made recommendations on mainstreaming climate change action in non-environmental groups.

Ensuring that smart meter roll-out delivers for the environment is another focus of Faye's work.

Prior to joining Green Alliance in 2007, Faye worked for the Environment Trust, a social enterprise working with communities in east London. She has also been a research co-ordinator at Involve, a public participation think tank, a project co-ordinator at The Environment Council and a member of the policy and corporate strategy unit in Defra.

She holds an MSc in development management from the LSE and a BA in international relations and development studies from Sussex University.
