Emma Piercy
Head of Climate Change & Energy Policy

Emma joined the Food and Drink Federation in October 2019, and is currently focused on developing a Roadmap to Net Zero for the sector. Alongside, Emma spends much time working with stakeholders across the supply chain and in other industrial sectors, to help food and drink manufacturing in the challenges ahead.

Immediate policy priorities include the UK Government’s forthcoming Industrial Decarbonisation Strategy, HM Treasury Report into the costs of meeting Net Zero, and the Net Zero Strategy to be published ahead of COP26. Building stakeholder commitment to net zero targets ahead of the UK hosting COP26 is another focus area, with particular attention to SMEs.

Before joining FDF, Emma held a number of policy and regulation roles with RWE AG, RWE Npower Cogen, Elexon, Sustainable Energy Association, First Utility (now Shell Energy) and National Grid Gas.
