Beth Thoren

Environmental Action & Initiatives Director, EMEA

Patagonia

 

Beth is an internationally respected environmental leader and advocate. She joined Patagonia from her position as Deputy Chief Executive at Client Earth, an environmental NGO with a unique approach – using the power of the law to create systemic change.

In response to the widespread suffering caused by Covid, in 2020, Beth used her spare time to initiate and lead a team of volunteers from across the nature sector to develop the National Nature Service: a programme to tackle the problems of nature’s decline and rising unemployment. This would provide young people and those from minority ethnic backgrounds with paid employment restoring the UK’s depleted landscapes and seascapes.
