Senior Lecturer in Environmental Law
I am delighted to have been selected to serve in one of the most important public bodies set up in Scotland since the Devolution settlement. I look forward to working with the ESS Board to support Scotland’s environmental ambitions.
Welcoming the nominations, Environment Secretary Roseanna Cunningham, said: “My intention is that Environmental Standards Scotland will be a strong, independent and effective governance body – and these nominations for appointment are the first step towards achieving this.
“Between them, Jim Martin and the other members being put forward have significant experience of leading independent, scrutiny organisations and across the environment sector and its regulatory frameworks, including particular experience in Europe.”
