Mr. Green Business

About Me:

An ex-commercial fisherman that turned to the ‘green side’ and pursue a career helping public and private actors in the global commodities sectors improve their ESG profiles. Have worked in Africa, Asia, Europe, North and South America. Focus has been on developing solutions for value chains to ensure improved livelihood for producers, at minimal cost, or a net profit, for value chain actors. Am now working with governments of four countries to develop solutions to decrease plastic escapement into oceans.

Your teamwork experience both in sports and fishing will likely make you a valuable contributor in projects and clubs.

    My biggest concern is that it appears that you already have an MBA (or an equivalent). You will absolutely need to explain why you need an MBA to acheive your goals and why now is the right time. Depending on how different schools …
