A conversation with Simon Boas Hoffmeyer - Director of Sustainability at The Carlsberg GroupRead More
Sanchali Pal is the CEO & Founder of a newly launching sustainability social enterprise, Joro. Joro is a soon to be launched app that helps you track your daily carbon footprint and see how your sustainable actions impact your life, but also add up to big impact in aggregate. Joro does this by giving users a carbon score to help them understand their daily impacts on things like travel, spending, and consumption and then helping give them pushes and rewards for sustainable activity that can be used for sustainable products or to support sustainable projects.
Sanchali's personal story is amazing. She is a graduate of Princeton for her undergrad, and received her MBA from Harvard. She has been in the worlds of social impact and tech for her entire career, including global development consulting on smart cities and urban development across Asia, Europe, Africa and US as part of the widely respected development consultancy, Dalberg . Though entrepreneurship has been a key focus of her career journey, she has also spent time working for the likes of Tesla and Morgan Stanley.
Our conversation moves from her background to how Joro came together. What it takes to build a great team, and consequently how hers is made up. How Joro is designed and why design matters can impact people and motivate decision-making. To the language and action around climate change and sustainability, how that adds up and what some of the biggest myths and challenges are moving forward.
