What is business purpose, and why is sustainability reporting a vital component? Chloé Joyeux looks at why there’s a lot more than meets the eye to getting this concept right, and the businesses that are reaping the rewards
I use my knowledge of cutting-edge sustainability practices to guide companies through the creation of new strategies and challenging targets, in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals and other sustainability frameworks such as B-Corp. Working with the retail sector and companies such as Nando’s, Kingfisher and TB+A, I advise and challenge them to think differently about their environmental footprint; I do this through the creation of ambitious targets, data collection frameworks and reporting processes. I have experience in submitting data to CDP on behalf of companies and have helped several clients to set ambitious science-based targets.
I was in Gabon working for the French Development Agency, where I developed and oversaw projects on biodiversity conservation and sustainable forestry. I completed an MSc in Biodiversity, Conservation and Management from the University of Oxford.
I enjoy any type of physical activity but have a soft spot for yoga and football. During holidays, I get out my kitesurfing kit at every opportunity.
