Former Australian netballer, Amy Steel knows first hand the consequences extreme heat can have on players.
Amy was a dual premiership player for the Queensland Firebirds and Melbourne Vixens before she suffered a heat stroke during competition in 2016 that ended her netball career and resulted in potentially lifelong health difficulties.
She has since been working with various sporting groups and organisations on climate change.
Amy works as a manager in Deloitte’s sustainability services team, helping clients to understand the risks of climate change on their organisation, and to successfully map out pathways to a low-carbon future.
She also works closely with the Sports Environment Alliance (SEA) to protect sporting culture for future generations.
