In personal life as in business, integrity should never be compromised. Do the right thing even if no one is watching. Integrity is the basis of all trust and also of sustainability.
Keep a Positive Attitude
Always keep a positive attitude towards your team, your work and your clients. Humor, patience and empathy go a long way. “The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude about the problem." (Captain Jack Sparrow)
Have Conviction and Think Big
Climate change needs bold ideas - and their execution. Conviction doesn’t mean being stubborn. It means sticking to your thesis, stand up for your beliefs and be loyal to your partners even when the going gets tough - as long as you keep listening, reflecting and learning.
Do Good and Do Well
Everyone wants to do well and investors expect us to deliver superior returns. We are committed to delivering results while contributing to a better world and doing no harm. The nascent pricing of environmental and social attributes through markets provides an incredible opportunity to do good and do well.
Be Passionate and Humble
Love what you do, respect and inspire others, be open to new ideas, value merit over hierarchy and cherish achievements, but never stop. Especially when dealing with developing countries and local communities as a Western investor, it is important to show and earn respect by being humble.
