Knowledge for a sustainable world

Zoe Collins graduated from Royal Holloway, University of London in 2016 with a BA in Geography, specialising in sustainable development, creative geographies and responsible consumption and production. Further to this, she studied for a Masters in Environment, Development and Policy at the University of Sussex, with a focus on supply chain politics and the relationship between gender and environmental injustice. In 2018, she published a chapter in the edited book The Geographies of Making, Craft and Creativity, exploring the intersection between gender, creative labour and development.

Zoe is an experienced corporate responsibility professional, working most recently for RELX, a multinational information and analytics company. Prior to this, she worked as the Sustainability Data Manager for a fresh produce company, working to increase supply chain resiliency through sustainable sourcing practices.

Zoe is particularly interested in the structural drivers of labour rights violations and environmental exploitation in food supply chains, and the effectiveness of governance initiatives to tackle these issues.
