ESG Reporting & Disclosure | Sustainability Program Manager

Expert profile

I am a seasoned professional with over a decade of extensive experience in program and project management​,​ analytics​,​ business intelligence​,​ and corporate social responsibility and environmental​,​ social​,​ and governance (ESG) practices. I hold a Master's degree in Sustainability from Harvard University​,​ and have earned graduate certificates specializing in Corporate Sustainability & Innovation and International Development and Policy. In June 2023​,​ I will become a certified Envision Sustainability Professional (ENV SP) through the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure. My most recent position was as the ESG Reporting & Program Manager at Catalyze​,​ a prominent clean energy transition company specializing in the development​,​ construction​,​ ownership​,​ and operation of solar​,​ battery storage​,​ and electric vehicle (EV) charging solutions for industrial and commercial real estate customers. In this role​,​ I played a pivotal part in integrating sustainability into the organization's core business strategy and ensuring its readiness for the evolving ESG reporting landscape. Before joining Catalyze​,​ I worked as a consultant​,​ where my responsibilities included developing climate action plans​,​ conducting greenhouse gas emissions inventories​,​ designing informative workshops for supplier climate action plans (SCAP)​,​ and providing limited-third party assurance of emissions data for public and private clients​,​ including federal agencies like USAID. Additionally​,​ I gained valuable experience while working on the enterprise sustainability team at Campbell Soup Company. There​,​ I was involved in supporting the entire corporate responsibility and sustainability program​,​ which encompassed tasks such as writing a quarterly sustainability newsletter​,​ working with consultants to transition the company to science-based targets (SBTi)​,​ and overseeing data collection (qualitative and quantitative) and submissions for various sustainability reporting raters and rankers. While I am open to collaborating with companies of all sizes and growth stages​,​ I believe that I can make the most significant impact by assisting smaller​,​ growing​,​ organizations that require expertise and capacity in areas such as data preparation and cleansing for sustainability reporting​,​ project planning for integration with third-party ESG reporting solutions like FigBytes and Brightest​,​ and the development of policies and associated programs such as sustainable procurement policies​,​ supplier group identification​,​ ratings software selection (e.g.​,​ EcoVadis)​,​ and supplier onboarding. If you find yourself thinking that your organization may not be quite ready for these initiatives​,​ don't worry. I can also help design a corporate sustainability program and strategy that is tailored to your organization​,​ guiding you towards your sustainability goals. My areas of expertise include but are not limited to: - Greenhouse gas accounting (GHG Protocol​,​ PCAF​,​ ISO 14064) - Climate action plan development (including suppliers​,​ Tier 1-3) - Peer & industry benchmarking - Gap analyses & assessments - Materiality assessments (single and double) - Reporting & disclosure frameworks (GRI​,​ SASB​,​ CDSB​,​ EcoVadis​,​ TCFD​,​ CDP) - Raters & rankers (Sustainalytics​,​ MSCI​,​ Corporate Knights​,​ DJSI​,​ ISS-oekem​,​ vigeo eiris) - Global goals & principles (UNGC​,​ Greenhouse Gas Protocol​,​ UN SDG's) - Corporate social responsibility (strategy and implementation) - Data visualization and dashboard development (Tableau) *Rate will vary depending on scope of work **Rate card for standardized work products available upon request
