Adrian Johnson, technical director at MWH, has been awarded an honorary professorship by a Scottish university. At the same time the Institution of Civil Engineers has appointed him to a steering group that will supervise a review of the sector as part of its ‘state of the nation’ series of papers.
Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh conferred the professorship in the school of built environment until July 2014 in recognition of his “thought leadership” on sustainability, carbon and systems thinking.
Garry Sanderson, managing director UK operations at MWH, said: “These awards recognise Adrian’s inspirational work in the field of water and environmental management. He has developed innovative new tools to help measure and manage carbon emissions as well as creating approaches to help clients develop strategies to mitigate climate change impacts.”
