Stuart McBain

Stuart is a local entrepreneur and accountant with over 25 years’ experience with clients and business interests throughout the UK.

He serves on the Liverpool board of the IOD and is well known among the sustainability community in Liverpool, where he advises many organisations both in a professional capacity and also through his vast knowledge gained from over 40 years of interest and passion with regards energy.

In the last nine months, he has undertaken two “adventures” to disprove “range anxiety”. The first, driving around Britain in an EV – some 3000 plus miles –  and then undertaking a similar journey around the beautiful country of Iceland, followed by presenting at the widely acclaimed Energy branding conference in front of many industry icons from around Scandinavia and Europe.

He is currently working with a small dedicated team of professionals to help define and measure organisational outputs from prepared accounts which will give  CSR and sustainability professionals not only a base line to compare, but an actual measure to quantify, true “Triple Bottom Line Accounting”.
