Why are you passionate about sustainability? What was the moment or event that made you decide to become a 'change maker' in your field?
Sustainability is embedded within my workplace everyday, it is a common practice for me so becoming a leader of change was not a question. I am passionate about sustainability because without it our environment is going backwards, we need it to guarantee our future. There was no one event, but I suppose seeing others being unsustainable made it certain that I wanted to be a change maker.
Why is leadership for sustainability is important?
Without the guidance of a leader or leaders, sustainability will die.
What do you plan to do next on your sustainability journey?
I plan to implement many more changes within my workplace to ensure we have a sustainable company.
