New Trustee: A warm welcome to Lisa Plit
A warm welcome to Lisa Plit, who will be joining the Table Mountain Fund Board as a new Trustee. Lisa is passionate about the environment, and has been since her first visit to the Kruger National Park as a young child. It was this passion that led her into a career in environmental law. Lisa graduated from Wits with a law degree, she then went on to obtain a Master’s Degree from the LSE, followed by a PhD from Macquarie University – both in environmental law.
She worked at Edward Nathan for a number of years and now works as an independent environmental law and sustainability consultant. Lisa’s practice is multi-faceted covering an array of topics, including: policy and legislative drafting, resource use (in particular mining and petroleum resources), waste management, corporate sustainability, responsible finance, environmental education and corporate governance. Lisa has also served on various boards and board committees and has been involved in the academic space, lecturing and writing on various environmental topics. She has also volunteered her time to assist in the primary education sphere, both with the administration and governance of schools, as well as assisting in a reading programme.
Lisa loves being outdoors and is an avid birder. Living in Cape Town for the last seven years, has given her the chance to enjoy the beauty of Cape Town, its mountains and its fauna, as well as the wonders of its floral kingdom. Joining the Table Mountain Fund has given Lisa not only the opportunity to give back to our majestic environment, but also to join an organisation that is driving conservation through inclusivity and upliftment, ensuring the sustainability of this remarkable place on the southern tip of Africa for everyone, now and in the future.
