Malcolm Forsyth, former director of global strategy at Scott Bader, has reportedly joined Composites UK as sustainability manager.

He replaces the association’s current sustainability manager, Stella Job, who will become sustainability specialist at the UK’s Aerospace Technology Institute's FlyZero project.

During his role at Scott Bader, Forsyth was reponsible for a long-term sustainability strategy for the company, and since leaving it in 2019, he set up his own business focused on making sustainability reports including co-authoring the Composites UK Sustainability Best Practice Guide, and helping source funding for composite recycling technology.

‘My seven years here have been a fantastic growth experience, interesting and strategic,’ said Job. ‘I've met so many great people and seen the Association grow in numbers, effectiveness and global respect.’

‘Sustainability is now of great strategic importance to the whole composites industry, and a major future challenge,’ added Forsyth. ‘Through my Sustainability Manager role at Composites UK, I look forward to working with all the composites industry stakeholders, to help move the value chain towards a true net zero impact.’
