Setting new standards in sustainability

For making sustainability the new norm within organisations

Before founding The Purpose Business, Pat led teams at Shangri-La Hotels and Ayala Land, setting standards in corporate sustainability with firsts such as a shark fin ban, DJSI listing, impact measurements and LEED developments, among many other industry firsts. She has an MA in Globalisation & Governance from the University of Oxford and a certificate of completion of Global Leadership & Public Policy for the 21st Century at Harvard Kennedy School. Pat also serves on the World Economic Forum Council on Future of Environment & Natural Resource Security, is a fellow of the Asia Society and the Royal Society of Arts, and a WEF Young Global Leader. Ultimately, however, she is passionate about sharing her 20 years of sustainability leadership to help businesses in Asia thrive through responsible growth.

Olivia is a bon vivant with an insatiable appetite for...everything. Upon being horrified at the amount of rubbish she produced in a single day, her journey towards finding a better balance between being extravagant yet sustainable began. Like most obsessions, down the rabbit hole she went and it wasn’t long before she decided to shift her sustainable preachings from Friday nights after too much wine to every day at Green Is The New Black. Olivia is still trying to figure all this ‘the end of the world’ stuff out, so she is keepin’ it real, one super small #LittleGreenStep at a time. Be like Olivia.
