For the second year in a row, we worked with Sustainia to run an innovative social media campaign on Twitter and Facebook for 2 weeks in May 2014 to identify future sustainability leaders for our Sustainability Roundtable in June 2014. The goal was to find a fresh mind who has taken inspiring action for sustainability, and who is young, vocal and passionately engaged in the fight against climate change.
We received 40 nominations from around the globe and after further research in the field; Kajsa Li Paludan was named our Future Sustainability Leader for 2014, for her work in co-founding and driving Cultura21 Nordic & Cultura21 International. The announcement took place at DNV GL’s 150th Anniversary event in June 2014.
Earlier winners include Alec Loorz and Grace Muthoni Mwaura, who both have gone on to make a mark in their chosen sustainability fields.
