Climate change is the biggest challenge facing businesses and organizations in the 21st century.

Will it affect your organization too? Let’s find out!

As an independent analyst and consultant, I support my European and international clients in the following areas:

  • Climate governance — As an experienced climate change advisor, I can help you analyze the climate-related challenges that your organization will face on multiple fronts and develop a comprehensive governance framework to help you to address them all, from data analysis and project development to financing and overall management.
  • Sustainability strategy — Ensuring that your operations are sustainable from an environmental, regulatory and business perspective is critical. I can help you navigate the rapidly changing market landscape with increasing certainty, allowing you to focus on your core business without worrying about climate risks and compliance issues.
  • Climate resilience — Let’s map and identify all the climate-related risks that your organization faces now and in the future, so that you can work on prevention. This includes both local, legal, and global aspects of climate change that need to be considered.
  • Development cooperation — I can also help you put all of the above into practice, helping you both with project development and engaging third parties and partners.

I have over 10 years of international experience with climate-related agendas and projects in Europe, America, and Asia, as well as a law degree, an MA in Political Science and International Relations, and a prestigious MIT certification to serve as a Chief Sustainability Officer.

If you are interested in working with me, send me an email with basic information to arrange an introductory call or meeting — and we’ll take it from there.
