“CIBSE is right at the forefront of so many issues that are finally being recognised as the most significant for every one of us” she said. “Whether it’s climate change, sustainability, technology or designing and constructing the built environment of the future, CIBSE engineers will continue to play a pivotal role. There could not be a more exciting time to be joining this august and respected institution.”
CIBSE President Stuart MacPherson, who worked with the organisation’s trustees on this key appointment, pointed to the energy that Carter will bring to the role: “We look forward to Ruth supporting delivery of the CIBSE five-year strategy with a continued focus on building performance, including building safety, climate change and net-zero carbon.

She has particular understanding of publications and events management and the multi-mode delivery of these that will be so important in the future to serving our members and our wider community of stakeholders.”
