My Mission

To help companies develop and implement strategies for sustainable business development so that we achieve long-term prosperity and healthy societies within planetary boundaries.

Your business can be profitable while serving society and saving the planet

Hi! I am a strategy consultant who is passionate about helping businesses become more sustainable.

We live in challenging times that require people, institutions and companies to evolve. Companies that fail to become sustainable risk being out of business soon. My work for facilitating this sustainable transition is guided by three principles:

Principle #1: Sustainability is the basis of competitiveness.
Companies can only stay competitive and profitable in the long run, if they contribute to the wellbeing of society through the responsible use of natural resources.

Principle #2: Adaptation is the key to survival.
Only companies able to adapt to fast-changing business environments will survive and thrive in the long run.

Principle #3: Strategy is the source of success.
In order to master the transition to becoming sustainable and to continually adapt to a changing business environment, companies need a clear strategy that is rigorously implemented and reviewed.

My work is all about supporting companies to develop and implement strategies for sustainable success. If my principles are in line with your values, I would like to hear from you and work with you.
