Robert Spencer - AECOM

Robert is Director, Sustainable Development at AECOM, arguably the largest infrastructure organisation in the world.

The Year is 2050. It’s a parallel universe. A universe in which we were too ignorant to take the steps required to tackle climate change and global warming.. 

Britain is now a desertified island.  The Government has fallen. The cities are wastelands. We live as farmers, gatherers and hunters.

Your community must move on to survive.

You must leave everything behind....apart from 7 records, a box set and a gadget. 

Welcome to Desertification island discs. Choose wisely….Robert Spencer.


Robert is Director, Sustainable Development at AECOM, arguably the largest infrastructure organisation in the world. 

Robert works with AECOM's clients to develop strategies, business cases, action plans and projects that embed more sustainable ways of working into everyday business decisions, leading to better outcomes for our people and communities and our natural environment.

He was also highly commended at the inaugural IEMA Sustainability Impact Awards in September 2019 for his role as a sustainability leader at AECOM.


Please have a watch. This was a really enjoyable episode to host. Robert is clearly passionate about his subject area and is an authority on many of the subjects we see as vital in our journey at Ditto.  My daughter Annabel also makes an outtake appearance. So watch out for that!

We can learn about sustainability in many ways, hopefuly this is another good way too.  Please do let us know what you think. Robert's 7 records are available below.
