Christine St John Cox

Christine St John Cox specialises in developing energy and carbon policy and strategy, and identifying carbon abatement opportunities – particularly for the retail and finance sectors.

Internationally, she has supported organisations in establishing approaches to their estate and property portfolios.

Between 1996 and 2003, Christine worked as a mechanical building services design engineer.
