In January 2014, Simon Lewis set up Team Planet - a specialist consultancy providing sustainability advice to sports organisations that are getting to grips with sustainability requirements, as well as those in the sector looking to gain benefits by doing sustainability well. Before Team Planet, Simon spent 12 years at WWF, the global conservation organisation.
At WWF he led network engagements with sport, establishing partnerships and initiatives to address sport’s impact on the planet and to develop sustainable legacy projects through sport. From 2004 to 2012 WWF’s development of the 'One Planet 2012' programme with LOCOG and the London 2012 Olympic Games was a key focus. Simon’s previous employment includes the Natural History Museum in London and the education charity Learning through Landscapes.
