Will Grinstead

Senior Consultant

Will is a Senior Consultant in the Climate, Nature and Resource business unit. He is focused on our Nature and Biodiversity offering, working with clients to navigate the emerging nature frameworks, standards and initiatives.

Will’s primary focus is on helping clients understand how frameworks such as the Taskforce on Nature-related Disclosures (TNFD), initiatives like the Science Based Targets for Nature (SBTN) and reporting requirements such as the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), can stimulate positive impact and action and speed up the integration of Nature Risk within existing risk management, strategy development and decision-making processes.

Before 3Keel, Will worked within the water management consultancy at AtkinsRealis, applying a natural capital approach to creative solution delivery for clients across the water and local government sectors. This included integrating ecosystem service benefits into cost-benefit analysis to improve nature-focused outcomes, integrating natural capital into business case development and investigating how natural capital quantification may enhance access to private funding for nature recovery.

Prior to Atkins, Will had a brief stint at Nature Finance, contributing to the development and launch of the TNFD and the direction of the initial working groups, and also spent six years working at NatWest within their Structured Finance division.
Will has a first class degree in Economics from the University of Birmingham, and completed an MSc in Sustainable Transition: Economics, Policy and Transitions from UCL prior to his move from Finance to Sustainability Consulting.
