Planet Tracker Team

London, 25 January 2021: Planet Tracker is strengthening its research team with the immediate appointment of Catherine Tubb Ph.D. as Senior Investment Analyst, to support the think tank’s fast growing textiles programme.

Catherine, who holds a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry from Cambridge University, joins Planet tracker from RETHINKX, where she has worked for the last three years as Senior Research Analyst, in particular co-authoring the report “Rethinking Food and Agriculture 2020-2030 – The Second Domestication of Plants and Animals, the Disruption of the Cow, and the Collapse of Industrial Livestock Farming” published in September 2019. The report involved identifying and understanding the key technologies in the alternative protein space and is regarded by many investors as required reading.

Prior to her role at RETHINKX, Catherine was a Senior Equity Research Associate at Sanford Bernstein, working on a variety of teams in the financial equity research space, including a spell in the European Luxury Goods team.

“Catherine brings an impressive blend of scientific and financial experience to the team at Planet Tracker”, said CEO Robin Millington. “Combined with her research background, she will help us to expand our work on the global textiles industry which began in 2020 with the publication of our first textiles report on the wet processing sector”.

A keen sportswoman, Catherine obtained a Cambridge Blue in Boxing and a Half-Blue in Rugby.

Sleeve labelling provides a short-term solution to boost recycling rates, Planet Tracker says

Currently less than nine per cent of plastic waste is recycled and attention is too often focused on the container’s material to the neglect of the type of label used. However, the availability of recycled plastics is not currently able to meet this rising demand. Consumer brands should adopt a self-help approach which ensures that labels are of the same material as the container.
