Welcome to our new Non-Executive Directors

We’d like to welcome our recently appointed Non-Executive Directors to the Zero Hour team who will be lending their skills and expertise to help us power the campaign for the Climate & Ecology Bill in 2024 and beyond.

Aaron Oxley

For over a decade Aaron was the Executive Director of Results UK, a campaigning and advocacy organisation that works to create the public and political will to end global poverty. Now he is the Co-Founder of AAccountability, building tools to help advocates everywhere hold decision makers accountable to the promises they made in the Sustainable Development Goals.

“Tackling the world’s biggest problems needs all of us to get involved. Over and over I’ve seen how every person can make a difference through using their voice and helping others to do that too—Zero Hour is a powerful way of doing just that.”

Amelia Balls

Amelia is a Manager at PwC, specialising in the delivery of audits to charities, not-for-profits and higher education institutions. She is a chartered accountant, and holds a BA in History and Politics, with a focus on Environmental History and the relationship humans have with the environment around us.

“Having discovered a passion for the environment whilst at university, I am incredibly excited to take on this role at Zero Hour and support the organisation as it moves into the next phase of its campaigning for the successful implementation of the Climate and Ecology Bill.”

Michael Scott

Michael has always had a passion for the environment since he completed his first degree in plant science. While most of his career was in management, principally as a Chief Executive in the NHS, he is now retired and holds a number of non-executive roles including with the Norfolk Broads National Park, and now Zero Hour.

“I am excited to be joining Zero Hour to campaign for meaningful and legally binding action on the climate crisis and biodiversity.”

Sarah Armstrong

Sarah is a senior Human Resources professional (and a vet in a previous life!) with a broad commercial background and considerable experience of leading organisational and cultural change and enabling evolving businesses, delivered through a passion for achieving performance through people and the partnering of executive teams and Boards.

“I am really excited to be joining Zero Hour and look forward to adding value through leveraging the combination of my business and HR skills with my life-long love of nature, wildlife and the countryside.”

Sophie Dembinski

Sophie is Ecosia’s Global Head of Policy and Climate Action. She leads on tech and environmental advocacy and building scalable solutions to the climate crisis for Ecosia, one of the world’s largest non-profit tech and reforestation organisations. She is also an advisory board member to Stop Ecocide International.

“I am delighted to join the team’s fantastic efforts and those of the numerous cross-bench parliamentarians, civil society and business representatives supporting the Climate and Ecology Bill. The Bill provides both the critical opportunity to stop and reverse climate change and biodiversity loss and to strengthen the UK’s response to the joint climate and nature crisis—an opportunity we cannot afford to miss.”
