My Strengths

International Expertise

I have lived, studied and worked extensively in different countries in Asia, North America and Europe for a total of 8 years. 

In accounting for sustainability, I have worked on international projects (UN, EU, B Lab, R3.0, Capitals Coalition, ISSB), national projects (ADEME), North American based projects (Impak). 

Some projects include

  • Leading clusters in the EFRAG Taksforce from 2020 to 2022 
  • Publishing a report on the international diffusion of Integrated Reporting 
  • Co-leading the EU Eklipse Biodiversity & SME Project 

Training & Coaching

I train and coach finance professionals, and finance teams to integrate sustainability within their practices.  

I accompany managers and professionals to learn how to account for sustainable development.

Some projects include

  • Creating the first executive trainings in accounting for sustainablity in France
  • Creating the first certified worldwide program in accounting for sustainability

Action Research

I create accounting for sustainability for practice, and publish research out of my experiences. 

This research method is a win-win solution in an area where practice lacks resources, tools and theorization, and where research lacks in depth case studies.

Some projects include

  • Co-constructing an integrated report
  • Participating in a company wide carbon accounting project
  • Leading SDG reporting for a mulinational 

Impact

As an academic, I engage with business companies, governments, international associations, standard-setters, think thanks and NGOs to integrate the academic voice into practice.  

Some projects include

  • Working with UN Global Compact on COP reporting
  • Creating a multi-capital accounting project with multinationals 

Project Lead

I have led multi-year multi-stakeholder projects for near to 20 years now in international academic, standard-setting and business contexts.  

Some projects include

  • Leading a 3 year academic project on carbon accounting for SMEs 
  • Leading an International Research Center
  • Leading standard-setting in the context of EU/EFRAG
