What are your main responsibilities?
My role is to support our clients in meeting their decarbonisation targets and awarding Green Building certification for their assets, contributing to the developments of their strategic plans and future investments.
What’s the best part of your job?
The beauty of being a sustainability consultant is to have the opportunity to provide advice for valuable purposes and principles, supporting sustainable choices and contributing to the change that our planet needs. I love the fact that I can be creative because every project is different.
I like challenges, especially in providing stakeholders with the right questions, not just with answers, and the satisfaction of finding them.
Where is your dream holiday destination?
Ever since I was little, I have never missed a holiday by the sea. As I grew up, I also learned to appreciate the mountains, walking into nature and taking time to observe the beauty around us. My dream holiday is a mix of relaxing time in contact with the ecosystem and some active time for walking, exploring, meeting people and learning about new cultures. Anywhere in the world would be good!
