Suir Engineering has appointed Ellie Walshe as its new Head of Sustainability, strengthening its commitment to material environmental and social practices.

 A former Associate Director and Senior Sustainability Manager at Davy Horizons, the environmental, social and governance (ESG) and Sustainability advisory team within Davy Group, Ellie will lead the development and implementation of Suir Engineering’s sustainability strategy. Her role will focus on mitigating risks and promoting opportunities across all material ESG impacts.

Ellie’s appointment is a tangible demonstration of our commitment to not only operating more sustainably but to making a real difference in our governance structure. Her expertise in social and environmental management aligns to our objectives and vision for the business and this new role will be central in redefining and driving Suir Engineering’s long-term strategy for Ireland and across Europe.”

She then advanced to Environmental Advisor at Costain Group PLC, followed by Senior Sustainability Manager at Mace. After that she was appointed Environmental Manager at mac-group, then Senior Sustainability Manager at Davy Financial Services, before being promoted to Associate Director.
