Andrew Smith PhD CEng BEng
Anyone who knows Andrew will say he is massively passionate about bringing our Carbon emissions down. He has worked in numerous industries bringing about improvements and coaching behaviour change. As an Engineer though, his feet are firmly rooted on the ground when it comes to practicalities. He says lightening our footprints is everyone's challenge and thus is comfortable working with absolutely anyone, from Corporate Directors to householders. 2006 saw him found ZapCarbon, and it's kept him rather busy ever since.
Dale Holroyd MSc BSc
Dale likes the idea that it's possible to influence thousands of people using online communication and technology and has always been passionate about behaviour change. He is a Certified Internet Consultant and has vast experience working with large corporates as well as small start-ups in developing online communication strategies. A common interest in community and carbon emissions resulted in Dale and Andrew partnering in 2008.
Sally Whitley MSc

Joe Karmali BSc (Psychology), MSc
Joe is our latest recruit to the consultancy team. With a degree in Psychology and Masters in Environmental Science he brings a dynamism and passion to the team. He is very keen to help others make a difference and never lets a Carbon-saving opportunity pass by unaddressed. Joe is keen on all aspects of environmental matters, and when not saving Carbon you can find groving the countryside or plotting his next skiing trip. If Joe's on your project, you can be sure of a good result.

Chris heads up our technology team. He oversees all aspects of our web and software systems development.
Ken is our Senior database specialist and leads our database web development services. Ken has been the technical power behind the functionality of all our products since 2008. No-one quite knows how he does what he does. All we know is he's ever so clever...
