ON REIMAGINING THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT:
“"Healthy workplace” has taken on a whole new meaning these days. As we navigate the future of our workspaces, we have learned that sustainability can reach far beyond the walls of an office building. Since it is unlikely that the shift to remote work will ever completely reverse from suburbs back to cities, we are seizing the opportunity to ensure the data centers that power our ‘WFH’ set-up are efficient and innovative.”
ON A FUTURE THEY WANT TO LIVE IN:
“I am an eternal optimist. Even after the craziness of 2020, I still believe there is a light at the end of this tunnel and our society can come out stronger! But, in order to make that happen, we need to prioritize the health of our natural environment like never before. Climate action, renewable energy, equitability, land restoration, and responsible supply chain are currently at the top of the list. Also a solution to the recycling crisis! That’s what really keeps me up at night.”
