The Berkeley Center for Green Chemistry is excited to welcome Amanda Cattermole of Cattermole Consulting to its executive board. Ms. Cattermole is a sustainability consultant with over twenty years of Green Chemistry experience. She has been a friend to the BCGC for over five years, beginning with her support with the collaboration between Levi Strauss and the Greener Solutions course. Most recently, she joined us at the SAGE Sunset Celebration, partnering with Marty Mulvihill to discuss how hazardous chemicals have spurred green chemistry innovations in the apparel industry. Now the BCGC is fortunate to have her bring her expertise and insight to our board.
Amanda has provided a short bio:
“In 2014, after a 25 year career at Levi Strauss and Company (LS&Co.), Amanda Cattermole founded Cattermole Consulting, a consultancy that helps organizations develop chemical management strategies that result in safer products made in cleaner supply chains.
Through her work, education and experience, she has significant expertise about hazardous chemicals and how they are used in consumer products, especially in the textile and leather industries.
Her services include business development and strategic advice, education and training, communication and developing innovation strategies to drive profitable growth.
Amanda was the technical point person for LS&Co. during the Greenpeace Detox campaign. She was involved in the initial “Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals” multi-stakeholder group and led one of the work-streams, which was tasked with developing and implementing a prioritization framework to phase out hazardous chemicals used in the apparel and footwear supply chains.
Amanda graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Colour Chemistry from Leeds University in 1987 and a Masters degree in Textile Chemistry from UC Davis in 1989.”
