Caring for the environment has been a major focus for Adam for much of his career. He’s a trustee of the Eden Project and non-executive board director of Eden Project International Ltd (EPIL). Adam is also the chair of the Eden North (Morecambe) Project and the founding chair of UK 5G’s Climate and Environment working group, part of the government UK5G advisory board.
His commitment to sustainability has been key to many of the ways we work to be more environmentally friendly at aql, such as the design of our data centres which are not only highly efficient, but also capable of heat capture and offload that could be beneficial to future smart city district heating initiatives. Our work with the Eden Project, through which we gather and present data on the ecosystems in their biomes, is something Adam is deeply passionate about.
