Congratulations to Caroline Drummond NSch
I am sure you will wish to join me in congratulating Caroline Drummond NSch, LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming) Chief Executive in being awarded Women Economic Forum’s ‘Women of the Decade’ award for sustainable farming, celebrating her achievements and contribution to sustainability and corporate leadership. Caroline accepted the award on the 12th April at the Annual Women Economic Forum (WEF), in New Dehli, India.
Caroline Drummond added: “It is a great honour to receive this award. I am very humbled to be selected and grateful for the support of my colleagues over the years, with whom I would like to share this recognition. It signals LEAF’s growing recognition on the global stage in driving more sustainable farming."
Caroline has led LEAF since it was first set up in 1991. Her work focuses on encouraging more sustainable farming practices and building better public understanding of farming and the environment.
