what ignites me?

my why

I believe that the planet is awesome and people are awesome. But let’s be honest, the way we are currently living our lives around the globe is neither good for the planet or people. We have to start working towards a future where people and nature thrive together. 

The scientific community around the world came to a solid conclusion many years ago; we have to change the way we live before we irreversible alter the climate on this planet to a situation that isn’t suitable anymore for humans to live and thrive in.

I love human beings,  their empathy, creativity, resilience and love for life. That’s why my passion is to accelerate the global sustainability transition. To create a world in which all life forms thrive.  

With The Green Sprint we guide and facilitate organisations on their sustainability journey, enabling them to develop strategies and innovate; and transform business models, processes and products/services from destructive, to sustainable, to regenerative. 

I absolutely love what I do, and I firmly believe that we can build a happier, more sustainable and more inclusive future for all.
