Darren, a Plant Superintendent for AquaGib’s Water Production Department, is currently undertaking a PhD in organizational change for corporate sustainability.
In 2015 Darren gained a Master of Engineering Degree from the Open University, with modules in Environmental decision making, Sustainability and Change. For his final dissertation Darren worked with three other Engineering students, in the design of an eco village in Cumbria, focusing on water, waste water and waste management.
Locally, Darren has worked on various engineering projects, such as the re-designing of sewage pumping stations, focusing its operational elements on an environmental and economic sustainability design.
Darren’s research will centre on an internal action research plan, specifically applied to assess Gibraltar’s water industry core business practices. Identification of organizational methods, processes and procedures, will be evaluated to provide a vision of sustainable corporate opportunities, aiming to identify improvements where required; these, focused on the organizations culture/social systems, governance structure and communication techniques.
