My focus is on helping companies adapt to the parameters given to us by the planet, climate change and human needs. This involves strategy, measurement and risk management.

How Hanne is building a better working world

“Climate change presents challenges that many organizations are not prepared to overcome. Even the most agile and adaptive organizations can find it difficult to envision the future to which they must adapt, given the uncertainty at hand. Serving as their navigator through this journey allows me to help them build a better working world for us all.”
