LET'S MAKE SUSTAINABILITY WORK

Sustainability commitments introduce new challenges.

Achieve your goals by focusing on means, not measures.

WORKING

TO BUILD A BETTER WORLD

Is your organization serious about contributing to sustainability?
If so, then all staff need an accurate view of your industry in the global context and the confidence to apply that knowledge in day-to-day decision-making.
The world is remade daily by our decisions and their outcomes. Building competency in sustainability into the work assures that people are making a better world every day that they are on the job.

WHAT I DO

MY SERVICES

I help organizations implement sustainability informed by lean thinking. Developing your people to understand and confidently apply sustainability insights in their daily work.
Sustainability issues are rarely integrated in meaningful ways into how businesses operate. With attention to people and process, we can work together and achieve critical sustainability goals.
