Costa Coffee seeks sustainability lead

This follows the departure of Oliver Rosevear from his environment head role.

Costa Coffee is recruiting for a sustainability lead, who will be tasked to develop its sustainability strategy and guide the implementation programme across the UK and Ireland.

The move comes as head of environment, Oliver Rosevear, steps down from his role in order to a new challenge elsewhere. Rosevear shared the vacancy on LinkedIn, admitting it felt “strange to promote your own role” after so long in the job.

“Costa is a fantastic company and I’d love someone who’s as passionate as me at driving sustainability to take over the helm in the UK,” he wrote.

The chain’s new Sustainability Lead is expected to manage a prioritised programme of initiatives across a variety of working groups to deliver on defined priority projects – including community, circular economy and climate. He or she will also be responsible for the management and reduction of the environmental impact across all platforms and deliver key projects, particularly the UK reuse and recycling programme and sustainable packaging programme.
