Sustainability is impacting and driving the direction of stakeholders. Creating alignment with this in an organization’s strategy is fundamental to accessing value through being sustainable.

How Michelle is building a better working world

“Every organization including my own has to achieve sustainability. Not only for itself but for its people, the communities within which it operates, society and the world as a whole. I believe that sustainability links us all. One person’s carbon footprint becomes part of another’s carbon balance sheet.

I help build a better working world by collaborating with organizations holistically and helping them to appreciate the need to understand and align with stakeholders. This is key to achieving sustainability success both within and beyond our clients.”
