What drives you? Knowing that my daughter as part of the next generation might not be able to experience our wonderful planet the way we have drives me to make a change to the way we as human beings interact with our natural world. My most influential proverb is “If we harm Biodiversity we Self harm”.
What projects do you work on that you love or are most passionate about and why? From a professional point: working on Carbon Inventory accounting and Science based target settings with Financials institutions as FI’s in my opinion can bring change in the best possible way.
From a personal point: a charity bicycle trip from Cairo to Cape Town – 10,000km of riding through the most beautiful and interesting spots I have ever visited together with helping communities and people I have got to love and admire.
Career highlight/game changing project/something that made a big impact: As part of a global Sustainability Team for a global Asset Finance institution I was involved in many projects to help address the company’s financed emissions inventory. This included rolling out a Climate Journey Fund to assist customers in the agricultural industry implement ESG strategies. The highlight was a truly game changing, world first project I kicked off to facilitate the usage of Biofuels in Tractors with an avoided emissions potential of 25-30%.
