Co-founder - Creative
Immy oversees and creates our visual identity & marketing. She believes that in order for earthrhize & our partners to be understood & celebrated we must have visuals that compliment them.
She studied architecture at university and has always been fascinated with the natural world and loves designing spaces that work in symbiosis with it.
In her spare time she has just started rollerblading and can’t wait to go Saturday night fever on the streets of Bristol.
Co-founder - Strategy
Duncan has a variety of experience across the worlds of sustainable finance and climate research. He is the former Executive Director of Prosper Social Finance and remains on the advisory board. He is involved in a variety of climate activism work as a delegate to the Mock COP climate policy summit and as a Leader for the Climate Reality Project.
His passion for all things climate bleeds in to his musical side projects where he works climate themes into his musical creations.

Andrew is Trustee of the Marr-Munning Trust and Bees Abroad - both charities focus on poverty relief through creating sustainable livelihoods.
Currently finishing his dissertation for a MSc at SOAS in Climate Change and Development – it's going to be a riveting read on Article 6 of the Paris Agreement (bluff).
Archie studied Classics at university, but is now focused on researching solutions to halt climate change and protect the environment. He is also the resident bookworm - reading, distilling and questioning the tsunami of climate books.
Away from earthrhize, you’ll find him either knitting, drumming in his band or practicing the lost art of coppicing in an ancient woodland on the South Downs.
From founding large community driven events to creating a jackfruit burrito food stall, Matt enjoys thinking outside the box. He produced a research paper focusing on supporting future generations by implementing sustainable development practices within organisations and is in pursuit of inspiring and building projects which embody future facing initiatives. His aim being to reconnect us with nature and a more sustainable future.
On a Saturday morning you'll catch him down at your local river with a flask of hot tea in hand, having just gone for a leisurely swim.
Sayan is an Environmental scientist, renewable energy consultant and record producer. He's been involved in the technical as well as the humanitarian sides of the climate space.
Originally hailing from a small town in India called Bhopal he recently graduated from the University of Arizona.
For Sayan working with earthrhize reinforces the thought that humans are the only known species that can cause such mass destruction to our planet…. but we are also the only known species that can save it.
Ed is experienced in environmental research from studying the effectiveness of biological controls in salmon farming to techniques to decarbonise his department at university. Experience researching at a private equity fund cemented his belief of utilising market forces for long-term environmental and social sustainability. Now alongside his work at Earthrhize he is working towards a certification in ESG investing.
Ed spends his free time sewing shirts out of reclaimed materials and is currently teaching himself Spanish in anticipation of a cycling tour around Spain.
