Climate change is the greatest threat humanity has ever faced; however, it poses an opportunity for innovation, collaboration and the evolution of industry practices. My experiences allow me to understand the need for effective thoughtful initiatives that are sensitive to others priorities, but principally combats the prevailing narrative that sustainability only happens at the cost of economic growth, which is crucial for the world to meet its carbon targets. I believe I have the enthusiasm needed to make myself an effective team member. My current role means working and responding to frequent changes in Indian renewable legislation, analysing and thinking creatively about the impact of these changes and succinctly presenting this information to a wide audience. I have had to hone my ability to quickly identify credible sources of information while also seeking support from third parties when applicable. My experience in carbon markets is evidence of my awareness and understanding of how policy effects industry and the public. I understand policy needs to combine the agendas of many stakeholders to create something that is impactful and principally allows individuals, corporations and governments to meet their goals.
