This year’s Sir Denis Rooke Memorial Lecture will be delivered by The Rt Hon Lord Deben.

The Rt Hon John Gummer, Lord Deben, set up and now runs Sancroft, a Corporate Responsibility consultancy working with blue-chip companies around the world on environmental, social and ethical issues.  Lord Deben is Chairman of the Committee on Climate Change, Valpak Limited, and the Personal Investment Management & Financial Advisers Association. He was the longest serving Secretary of State for the Environment the UK has ever had (1993-97).  His sixteen years of top-level ministerial experience also include Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries & Food, Minister for London, Employment Minister and Paymaster General in HM Treasury.  He has consistently championed an identity between environmental concerns and business sense.

The Sir Denis Rooke Memorial Lecture is the seminal event in IGEM’s calendar and in the past has featured distinguished influential speakers including: Lord Browne of Madingley; Chris Stark, CEO, Climate Change Committee; Dame Judith Hackitt, former Chair of the Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety and Chair of manufacturing trade body Make UK; Dame Ann Dowling, past President of the Royal Academy of Engineering and Dieter Helm, Professor of Energy Policy at the University of Oxford.
