How Jan is building a better working world

“There are many factors driving sustainability and the wider environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues to the top of my clients' agendas. In my day-to-day work, I help them transform their ESG and sustainability strategy. This not only addresses the increasing focus of investors and stakeholders on their nonfinancial performance, but also creates and protects new sources that offer both short- and long-term value.”
