How Kristin is building a better working world

“I am a firm believer in 'what gets measured gets managed,' which is why I have dedicated my career to the clear and transparent reporting of ESG information. Understanding performance and progress on ESG issues is a critical part of their management. To enable action, we need processes and systems we can rely on. The synergies between traditional accounting and emerging ESG accounting are abundant, and I look forward to fostering the next generation of these hybrid professionals.”
