About
After 20 years at SAP, I have now moved to Wood plc where I am Senior Vice President for Sustainable Development. Additionally I support a number of UN initiatives and non-profit organisations including the WEF Climate Governance Initiative.

In 2020 I co-founded and launched together with UN Global Compact SDG Ambition, which challenges ands supports companies in being more strategic, and transformative in how they run their businesses to deliver on the 2030 Agenda and build on the ESG framework. SDG Ambition will challenge companies to set bolder goals aligned with their purpose, governance and strategy - and address barriers to speed and scale - with enterprise-wide integration that hardwires the SDGs into business management, business processes, and information technology landscapes.

The first Business Benchmark launched was Business Ambition for 1.5 C. This Business Benchmark challenges companies to take bold action to redefine business models to limit the global temperature and mitigate climate change, which will require integration of new functionalities and datasets within the existing enterprise software for businesses to become sustainable enterprises. This includes carbon accounting across the value chain, carbon ledger approach, calculation of high-level carbon footprint, and more. Nine other Business Benchmarks were launched at the UN Global Compact Leaders Summit. To learn more about SDG Ambition and the Business Benchmarks, please see here.

The most important question to ask ourselves when we look at gender equality is whether we are solving gender equality challenges based on the past, present, or the future.
