What are the most exciting developments within your field of work?
Locally and globally alike, for me the most exciting development is actually twofold:
There is a clear trend that sustainability has reached the board rooms of many organisations, i.e. it has reached utmost attention in executive management circles
And secondly; ambitious long-term goals – with absolute reduction targets, rather than relative ones – are becoming more and more common. What makes this even more interesting from my perspective is that this trend is backed, and even triggered by international research and global societal movements.
So, sustainability is becoming mainstream in society and business – and we at Ramboll Management Consulting have the skills to propel and accelerate this development.

Meet Karin Simondon
What do you work with?
I work on consulting projects for private companies, covering a wide range of topics, sustainability mostly but also other adjacent areas.
As a company Ramboll is leading within several sectors and those are also my focal point - for instance buildings and energy. I'm specializing within sustainability services for corporate clients, such as sustainability strategy, CO2 impact assessment, waste management, social impact, and so on.
What is the most significant professional experience you have had so far?
I worked for a client, a manufacturing company within the construction sector, supporting them in the development of a sustainability strategy by closely linking it to business opportunities.
We identified three commitments for the company going forward relating to social and environmental impact that are being developed and implemented by the company just now. – I really enjoyed helping the company take solid steps towards sustainable change.
