I am a sustainability and nature enthusiast originally from Finland. I have lived in France, Malta and the Netherlands and worked in the Energy Sector and at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). In 2020, I co-founded a cloud-based sustainability performance measurement tool. SDG Monitor helps companies and organizations to measure their sustainability performance and show their ESG and SDG impacts.
I graduated from the University of Turku with a Master’s degree in Economics and Business Administration (Marketing). Due to my strong motivation and passion towards sustainability and especially the circular economy, I have taken postgraduate open university courses in Natural Sciences at the University of Turku and in Business Sustainability Management at the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership.
Businesses: circular economy, managing business sustainability, monitoring business sustainability, holistic approach, innovative solutions, carbon neutral economy, systemic change, climate action, carbon sinks and biodiversity protection
Consumers: sustainable and conscious lifestyle, consumption habits, recycling, waste management and bio-based materials
What I write about?
I write about current topics in sustainability. Businesses have a crucial role in contributing to the systemic change, achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and viewing global problems as part of an overall system, holistically. Business practices must be thought from products and services, business processes and supply chains aspects. I truly believe in the potential of circular economy in mitigating the climate change.
Moreover, I want to raise awareness about plastic pollution problem, banning of single use plastic packaging, making recycling more efficient, oceans’ and ecosystems’ alarming state and how can we, as individuals, contribute to the global target of a net zero carbon economy by changing our consumption habits.
