My role is conscious innovation and sustainabilty to provide smart climate tech solutions

JOSIE LANE

Academia, Industry, Entrepreneurship

I have 20 years of education and research experience within crop/food production, food safety and food security (see my LinkedIn for more info, below). I was always working to bridge the gap between fundamental and applied agricultural sciences to optimize Primary Food Production – which is how we feed the planet. I self-financed my 1st PhD research where I developed a molecular method for precise, fast and affordable way to identify insect-pests and tailor crop protection strategies by introducing biological control measures. In this way, with early warning diagnostics (proactive) it possible to exclude chemical pesticides in 100%. Furthermore, by introducing biological control strategies - we are growing food and we re-build biodiversity at the same time. This is exactly how the future farming should look like – farming should give and not take. Today, AgroDNA as a service, is part of my startup Fauna Smart Technologies (FST) (www.faunasmarttechnologies). My PhD research at the University of Copenhagen was on climate change effects on insect population dynamics and behavior in crops. I took innovative approach to this as well by introducing new links between sciences and technology thus creating applied agro-eco-physiology – to predict pest attacks already during winter! By improving predictions we make farm management easier, by saving time, money and creating conditions for introducing more biological control strategies (green solutions). With a huuge desire that all that beautiful science steps out into the real world and saves it from itself – I founded Fauna. I believe that the makers of the brave new world are Entrepreneurial Scientists. It is the capacity of a research mindset to Solve Complex Problems and the world needs this more than ever, NOW. At Fauna Smart Technologies we pose the crucial question: HOW do we want to evolve as a species? Healthy and Infinitely Sustainable? How to do it? At FST we provide science based pathway for creating not only livable, but a thriving Planet. We start with agro-ecosystems (human managed systems) and then continue with natural ecosystems. We have been selected for the SDG tech award (2020, DK) for the Infinite Sustainability science and tech system approach for Ecosystem Restoration. This is a result of many years of education and research converged into a beautiful science based pathway to restore the health of our Planet. The system provides the biggest total impact: with depth and scale - starting from the Biosphere and covering all 17 SDGs.

Industry

My background in marketing and impact strategy for social enterprises has seen me work with many companies and non-profits in sustainable energy, circular food production, economic empowerment and equality. I'm now starting Moja (launching March), an underwear company that turns consumer power into projects that donate underwear, create job opportunities and contribute to hygiene workshops. We do this with a one-for-one model, however the donated pair are ALWAYS made in the local community in which they're donated by people with a distance to the labour market. As a One Young World Ambassador and frequent guest speaker at various events in The Netherlands, I believe I have build a strong expertise in understanding how to approach change and I look forward to furthering that with Impactr.

I have degrees in Medical Science, Public Health and International Health Policy.
My work in the pharmaceutical industry in Malaysia, Denmark and Mexico have provided me with a strong foundation on NCD advocacy (specifically diabetes and obesity) in different developed and developing markets. Working in women's health and rights organizations / divisions provided me with the understanding of policies and laws protecting vulnerable groups in South-East Asia and Africa, as well as the unmet need and underlying gaps. This analysis, alongside context-specific research, allowed my team to create effective programs and partnerships with local stakeholders.

Founder and CEO of Innorbis with more than 25 years expertis in the field, Angelica has developed and created Innorbis, a powerful, objective, scalable and trustworthy digital analytical system for sustainable finance.
Today’s economic and financial system are part of the problem , not measuring objectively the externalities and its price and values that matters. These are climate aspects, technology progression and transformation, and underlying governance aspects that are normally taken as discretionary in the investment world. Today we calculate with high automation all these aspects in a quants equation where qualitative aspects are measured alongside quantitative factors in a forward looking perspective for business assessment, risk and impact investing. We work with all the 17 SDGs and its targets , closing the gap between the markets and the new narrative in a sustainable development that we are proud of to be part of.

My passion shines when working collaboratively and effectively with partners in the public and private sector to advance human rights and sustainable practices on a global scale. My expertise within NGO events and causes sets me apart. I have over four years of experience in managing an array of local and international projects, events and grant programs, including project feasibility/outcome analysis, partnership development, and community engagement within the NGO sector. I promote social inclusion in everything I do. I have a deep understanding of disability rights and how universal design can improve the lives of everyone, not just people with disabilities. I hold a Master of Science in Global Development from the University of Copenhagen, which has equipped me with the theoretical and hands-on knowledge of applying an interdisciplinary lens to solve global sustainability issues. Most recently, I worked with the Danish Institute for Human Rights within the Business and Human Rights department where I co-authored a publication of an analysis on the development process, content, and implementation of current National Action Plans on Business and Human Rights adopted between 2013-2018.

I work as a Sustainability Manager at Chr. Hansen A/S. Chr. Hansen has been among the world leading companies on sustainability. I was able to map all of Chr. Hansen's products to the UN Global Goals and link them to their revenue. I am passionate about sustainable development, having realized there is no other way for growth. I also understand the important of making sure that the core businesses have to lead the way towards sustainable development which will influence policy development in the right way. I have been working with the life cycle assessment tool (LCA) for over 10 years and have a background in waste management technologies. I believe the knowledge of LCA and a corporate background, gives me the right overview to look at an issue from all possible scenarios and workout a solution that satisfies all stakeholders without compromising on sustainability. Infact my dream is that the new business model is nothing but sustainability driven business. Recently, I have also been involved in partnerships building and public affairs to influence the right policy decisions. Apart from all of this, I have used my presentation skills to spread the message on sustainability with various stakeholders like investors, policy makers, thinktanks, NGOs, customers and consumers etc. In the last 3 years, Chr. Hansen has been ranked the most sustainable company by Corporate Knights among their Global 100 list (no1 in 2019 and no.2 in 2020). Personally I was among the SDG pioneer nominees for Denmark by the UN Global Compact. I also realize there is a long way to go and I have a lot of work to do. But I am hopeful that with the right group of people and minds, we can achieve a lot!
