What do you currently do for Earth Active?
I am an ESG consultant providing Environmental and Social Impact Assessments (ESIA), Environmental and Social Due Diligence (ESDD), biodiversity assessments, climate change risk assessments and assessing projects against the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and international performance standards.
What opportunities have you been given?
In my role, I have worked in such a broad variety of sectors including agriculture, forestry, transport, and energy, and in a diverse range of projects across Ethiopia, India, Indonesia, Côte d'Ivoire, Kazakhstan, Romania, Somaliland, South Africa, Spain, Ukraine and the UK.
What do you love about Earth Active?
I am constantly being presented with new challenges and I’m always learning new skills and ways of meeting our clients’ needs. I love the variety in my role - no two weeks are the ever the same!
What value do you deliver to clients?
As a company, our expertise and experience within the teams means we fully understand the constraints and contexts of different sectors and countries, so we can offer bespoke solutions that work and are sustainable for clients.
What is your role at Earth Active?
My role ranges across a broad spectrum of disciplines, including environmental assessment and management, due diligence, sustainable solutions, and project management. My work involves providing and applying technical advice which incorporates the requirements of major international finance institutions on a variety of development sectors, including ventures within Asia, the Middle East, Europe, Africa, and the Caribbean.
I have a varied scientific background, starting in Marine Biology and then Air Quality before taking on a broader and more multidisciplinary role.
What makes Earth Active unique?
What makes working at Earth Active unique is our flexibility and distinct global network to collaborate with and ensure we bring the best experience and specific knowledge tailored for each project. It has also allowed me to work with numerous specialists and clients around the world, in addition to being involved in a range of projects.
What do you love most about what you do?
The relationships you build through regular client engagement and helping deliver high-quality environmental services and solutions that create a difference. My role has led me to work on projects all over the world and learn from unique environmental and social challenges projects face across different landscapes and cultures. These include projects in the Philippines, Oman, Uzbekistan, Ethiopia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Bangladesh, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Antigua and the British Virgin Islands.
What are the opportunities and challenges at work that get you excited?
There are wide opportunities to experience a multitude of topics due to the diversity of inhouse projects. The company supports exposure to high levels of responsibility at every career level, which has forced me to learn quickly. However, this has enhanced my knowledge and confidence to take on client challenges and lead projects independently. I am now an established project manager within the company, overseeing numerous projects simultaneously and holding multiple key client facing roles.
What is the value you deliver to clients?
Throughout my experience in International Development, I have gained a good understanding and overview of the issues projects face and strategically work alongside multi-disciplinary teams, stakeholders, and clients to meet project targets and de-risk investment opportunities through optimising environmental, social and governance outcomes.
