My name is Arthur B Toso, I am Brazilian with EU nationality, 29 years old. I have a bachelor's degree in Environmental Engineering, and MSc Environmental Management (Countryside and Protected Area Management).

I've built an educational background and started my professional experience in two of the largest worldwide companies of their sector, such as Bunge and Whirlpool-Embraco, working in the corporate environment department and in the sustainability department, respectively.

My strongest knowledge is in the management area along with performance indicators, sustainability reports, ability to deal with management issues and environmental area, such, waste and emissions control, quality and environment management systems (ISO 9001, 14001).

During University, I had the opportunity to participate in research projects which provided me with additional academic and personal skills, such as oratory, group work, focus on continuous improvement. My passion for the communication of sustainability started while researching for my dissertation, where for 2 years I studied and created procedure for verifying the compliance of sustainability reporting in relation to the guidelines proposed by the GRI.

In order to perfect my English, I attended an English Course at California State University - Sacramento California, USA, beyond an excellent international experience, for nine months and currently living in London - UK.

I am recognised for my competence, persistence, flexibility, resilience and commitment to management focused solutions and group results. I enjoy the challenges, the planning, and the satisfaction of knowing that a good job was done in a timely manner as a result of team and personal work. I have confidence that with my initiative, motivation, and ability to be proactive I can make a significant contribution to the success of your organisation.
