Michael Bateson

Senior Analyst

As a Senior Analyst, Michael’s role is primarily split between developing sutainability strategies, integrating ESG into investment processes, and advising on UK plastics / packaging / waste management reform. He has worked with an array of international clients – from food and beverage, to asset management, to sport, to construction – and plays a key role in delivering Sancroft’s marketing and communications.

Michael joined Sancroft after several years as an analyst in a leading stakeholder communications consultancy, throughout which he assisted clients in enhancing their print and digital reporting, and contributed to industry-leading research into corporate communications. Prior to this he spent time working for Aon and IBM in analytical-focused roles.

Michael holds a BA in Environment & Business from the University of Leeds, a degree which focuses on the tools and techniques businesses can use to better understand and act on sustainability considerations. His final year enterprise project (research-based dissertation) evaluated whether members of different university faculties hold contrasting environmental values, and was awarded the Sally McGill Memorial Prize for academic achievement.
