Founder and Director

I’m Dave Evans. I believe that positivity, persistence and a creative approach to problem solving can enhance environmental, social and environmental outcomes. I also believe that, all of us in the sustainability world, should embrace behaviour change.

If you want to stay in your comfort zone, we are probably not the best people to work with.

If you want to push yourself and your organisation to become the leaders in sustainability, then we should definitely talk.

Growing up on a small-holding, my love of nature was a given. Firsthand insights into the behaviour of jackdaws, badgers, herons, hares, shrews, foxes and our farm dogs captivated me. I was hooked on seeking to understand the ways of the animal world (including people) and still am.

This fascination has led me on a meandering journey through a Zoology degree, an MSc in Environmental Protection and a Warwick Business School MBA.

Along the way I’ve been privileged to learn from some amazing business leaders and have been involved in a portfolio of businesses owned by my family, in waste management, plant hire, technical consultancy, materials recycling, industrial services and hospitality.

I am now incredibly grateful that my business, Act Sustainably allows me to work with forward thinking organisations such as, J Murphy & Sons, Ecotricity, the Houses of Parliament, the Defence Infrastructure Organisation, Wales & West Utilities, Wates Group, Persimmon Group, Fluor, Vistry Group, UKRI/NERC, Exeter University and the Worldwide Fund for Nature.

I am also an IEMA registered Environmental Trainer, ESOS Lead Assessor, Environmental Auditor, a qualified Lead Auditor for ISO 9001 (Quality Management Systems), ISO 14001 (Environmental Management Systems) and ISO 50001 (Energy Management Systems). As I have a particular interest in procurement and supply, I am an Affiliate member of CIPS.

In 2019, I was invited to join the Flow Research Collective, founded by best-selling author and peak performance researcher, Steven Kotler.  At the Flow Research Collective we study the neurobiology of human peak performance. We take what we’ve learnt and use it to train a wide variety of people from all organisational contexts.

In 2022, I was thrilled to be granted Fellowship of the Royal Geographical Society and Fellowship of the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment.

The great American psychologist, William James once said, “The great thing then, in all education, is to make our nervous system our ally instead of our enemy”.

We try to be true to this maxim by embedding our understanding of neurobiology in all our training courses, whilst also teaching our students how to apply the same findings to influence behaviour back in their workplace and lives.

My current area of research and practice is exploring how we can redesign our workplaces, leadership and personal practices to enhance productivity and reduce environmental impact per unit output.

I’d love to help you and your organisation on your path to a sustainable future.

Head of ESG

Hi I’m Pamela, a lifelong wanderer.

As a child I was always out in the fields, hanging out with my best friend Jeremy, a pony not a person!

If I wasn’t in the field, I was on the beach, immersing myself in nature, my safe place.  Well, usually safe, there was a time, I had to run for my life.  In fairness, to my cousin, I had just released a bass given to me, to take home for my dad’s supper.  It was still alive, so I ran up the beach and put it back in.  I’m not the fastest runner, but thankfully Dai, a thick set prop forward, was too slow to catch me.

Recently, I have taken up paddle boarding and love exploring the beautiful coastline around our basecamp, in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.  I especially enjoy our summer Board Meetings!

I have always been passionate about protecting nature and during a 30 year career as a primary school teacher, I took every opportunity to help encourage the “little faces” to become mini eco-warriors.  I was proud to have achieved Eco-Schools Platinum status for my school.

Having recently retired from teaching, I am thoroughly enjoying my new role as Head of ESG at Act Sustainably. As well as making sure that the business remains compliant with its governance principals as it grows, my job entails deciding where to spend the 3% of revenue we donate to environmental and social causes.

As a geography graduate, I am especially interested in investing in projects that provide social and economic, as well as environmental benefits.

It’s a lovely feeling, being able to help local communities and nature through reforestation projects, developing seagrass meadows, protecting endangered species and financing entrepreneurs in developing economies.

I am very grateful, to our wonderful customers, for choosing Act Sustainably and helping us finance this very important work.
