I am a firm believer in corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability as important building-blocks of "reputation capital", brand and product differentiation, and risk mitigation when applied to the foundations of operations, human resources and corporate communications.
Having worked in both developed and emerging nations, I have witnessed first-hand the failures and successes of social and sustainable commitments. While a relaxed and at times non-existent commitment to environmental and corporate social responsibility policy, when put to the test, will lead to global embarrassment, lost revenue, and failed consumer loyalty; a firm and transparent commitment to sustainable policy, implementation and continued improvement, will capture and sustain markets for companies and stakeholders.
In regards to GHG (Green House Gas) reduction and management, I bring a wealth and breadth of experience and passion! I offer high-level expertise in carbon origination, and capping and trading as per the UNFCCC - Kyoto Protocol, as well as high-level management of CDM/JI projects through life-cycle. In doing so, I regularly meet with advisory groups, governments, certification bodies and clients and prepare communication briefs for stakeholders. In addition, I have worked with governments to develop carbon projects within emerging markets, including parts of Africa, China, Vietnam, Thailand, India and others. I offer ample experience working with the United Nations Development Program, the IFC and World Bank.
My passion for Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability stems not only from deep interest in related policy and eco-social change for global corporations, but also from my desire to work in a collaborative atmosphere with teams from several divisions, while managing a multitude of varying projects, clients and challenges!
