What was the driving force behind you completing further qualifications around the topic of sustainability?
I was a bit of a geography geek at school and was always interested in the subject of climate change and the human impact on the world.
After I started my business, I was keen to learn about the many things I could do to practice as sustainably as possible. Completing my certificate in Sustainability Management at the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership made me see that it’s not all doom and gloom.
We are the first generation to really witness and experience climate change and the last generation who can do anything about it. Whether it’s challenging our industries to do better or spending wisely by putting the money spent on an interior design project into something that will be doing good for the planet, I see it as something that we should all be learning about.
It should be second nature in the way that we operate as opposed to an afterthought or separate conversation. Anyone starting a business really should be thinking about their environmental impact. Now is the time to act, for ourselves and our future generations.
