Advisory Board 2018

  • Bob Latham

    Managing Director Delphi Projects Ltd., UK

    Bob Latham runs his own sustainability consultancy, Delphi Projects. Bob and a team of associates specialise in providing advice and guidance to corporate businesses on Sustainability governance, decision rights, stakeholder engagement and supply chain analysis, inspired by the twin mottos of the Oracle Of Delphi: “know thyself” and “nothing to excess”. Delphi Projects specialises in the wider pulp, paper, packaging and recycling sectors.

    Sustainability, marketing strategy and environmental responsibility have featured heavily in Bob’s previous career, which includes 16 years with leading UK paper merchant Robert Horne as Group Marketing and Commercial Director and 4 years as Sustainability Director with parent company PaperlinX, operating in 27 countries. Prior to that Bob worked for luxury paper convertor Svecia Antiqua, preceded by 9 years with speciality paper maker Wiggins Teape, during which time he managed the Conqueror brand worldwide in the 1980’s (happy days of paper usage…). Bob is a family man married with twin daughters and a “sustainable population” of furry and feathered animals at his home in Bedfordshire in the UK. Antiques and fly fishing are passions and his house is rather full of old chairs and fishing rods
