Top 10 Lessons I've Learned as a Sustainability Professional – February 4, 2015

Frances EdmondsFrances Edmonds may not like to admit it herself, but she’s a bona-fide sustainability trailblazer. As the Director of Environmental Sustainability at Hewlett Packard (HP) Canada, she has been advancing sustainability at one of the country’s largest IT solutions providers for close to 2 decades. It’s a position that she personally created when she got started there and continues to define on a daily basis.

Her journey to where she is today hasn’t been an easy one, however. In addition to overcoming the obstacles that a woman must face in a male-dominated industry, she has steadfastly challenged a “business as usual” status quo. She believes that there should be, and can be, sustainability in all jobs; a billion decisions being made every minute, in every industry, for greater sustainability.
