A film director and mum of three’s decision to turn down the chance to work on the latest James Bond movie has been rewarded.

Laura Hepburn, of Robin Hood’s Bay has been named in the Northern Power Women’s Future List for 2020 in her role as director of Greenology , a company which turns plastic waste into energy.

Laura began looking into the plastic problem ten years ago while studying a Masters degree in Future design at Teesside University.

But to fund her dream of setting up a company to turn plastic waste into energy, she also spent time last year as a director on Game of Thrones, Gentleman Jack and Danny Boyle’s Yesterday..

Laura explains what Greenology does

In her other work as a director - Laura says she's worked with some great people..

Speaking about the award Laura said:

“after such a tough year it was so much sweeter for my team who have worked so hard to make a dream a reality.

So to be recognised, makes myself and my team push even harder, to do what is right, it’s what the North and world needs right now.

This will give such a fantastic platform to showcase the talent and opportunities we have here in the North - the place I’m so passionate about.

I am so thankful for the support and recognition the Northern Power Women have offered myself and other women wanting to just do our job.”
