Personal quote

  • I want to contribute to fair and sustainable development: that is, meeting everyone's basic social needs within the limits of our planet.
  • I believe that governments, NGOs and companies can and must all contribute to this. On a personal level I can certainly help, but I am proud to be able to make a positive impact professionally. With our Sustainability team we support organizations in their sustainable development. This includes setting sustainability goals in the strategy, implementing them in the business processes and reporting on them. Our team is diverse, so that for every assignment we find the right balance between hands-on experience and a fresh perspective, between business knowledge and understanding of the organizational culture.
