Being born and raised in the Galapagos Islands, where sustainability is rooted in our communities and lifestyle, shaped my scope for integrating economics, society, and nature.
Since I studied in mainland Ecuador and later abroad, I realized that harmonizing nature and society should not be limited to fragile ecosystems like Galapagos, but instead it must be incorporated as the backbone of any society.
Today, mindful consumers and citizens demand responsible operations and business models from organizations. Organizations around the globe are measuring and reporting their impact, which identifies risks and game-changing opportunities to thrive upon to growth. As a result, gender equality, climate justice, food sovereignty, or wellbeing are aspects to address and improve, equally in the Galapagos and worldwide.
For that reason, I studied a Master in Sustainable Business at Griffith University in Australia, grounding the foundations for Plura Consulting. Established in 2019, we are based in Denmark, with members located in five other countries. Plura means diversity, as we strive to meet the wellbeing of every stakeholder.
In Plura, we interconnect the inner, outer, and systemic values of organizations, to nurture the balance between humans, nature, and prosperity. Like living-systems, organizations are improving and evolving continuously. By incorporating systems-thinking, they reflect their conscious, empathic, and collaborative leadership – committed locally and thinking globally.
