How Joanne is building a better working world

Joanne’s driving purpose is to help individuals and organisations focus on sustainable development impact: economic, environmental and social. Increasingly, assessments of what “value” means are re-focusing on long-term value creation capability, recognising that building prosperous communities and economies and a healthy environment must necessarily harness a wider, more holistic value equation for decision-making about how resources are applied. This long-term value lens is the foundation for driving long-term prosperity, and a better working world.
