I've always regarded myself as a team player. EcoSTEPS is attracting a terrific cross-section of professionals. I'm delighted we're able to pool our talents and expertise to put together such outstanding project teams. I've found that my personal values, particularly in the areas of sustainability and work/life balance, are held in common with the EcoSTEPS team. This makes working together such a stimulating and satisfying experience. At EcoSTEPS, we work with clients from all sectors of society to ensure a holistic approach to their challenges and opportunities. This means that it's a case of ‘Win-Win-Win' against the ‘triple bottom line' of Planet, People and Profit.
