The Rail Industry Sustainability Forum (RISF) has announced the appointment of Abigail Hancock as vice chair. Abigail, currently the head of environment and sustainability at Linbrooke Services, is a Chartered Environmentalist and a full member of the Institute for Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA).

“I’m really excited to be taking on this role and representing Linbrooke at such an important forum for the rail industry,” said Abigail. “It will not only be great from a personal perspective in gaining experience chairing such an exciting f orum, but for Linbrooke to be at the forefront of this demonstrates our commitment to sustainability and the decarbonization agenda.”

Abigail will take over as chair of the RISF in 2024, which highlights the confidence that the group has in her abilities. Linbrooke Services has shown their dedication to sustainability by supporting Abigail in this new role.
