Understanding the science behind sustainability challenges is key for you and your team to engage people and reduce the cognitive biases that affect our perceptions of climate change.

General awareness sessions such as lunch&learn talks can also help you identify future champions to integrate into your green team. Find ideas for lunch&learn, videos to share, workshops and talks... on The Matcha Initiative Sustainability Engagement Kit.

Workshops to calculate the footprint of individual lifestyles (Individual Ecological Footprint) and identify key levers to learn, reduce and change habits are highly recommended. They contribute to give coherence to your corporate sustainability strategy and encourage people to take actions as a powerful tool against eco-fear.

Creating a sense of belonging with green communities to share experiences and debate with others is also proving useful.

Thibaut Meurgue
Entrepreneur & It Sustainability Consultant, Co-founder – Found & Seek, Singapore Country Coordinator - Climate Fresk

I am Thibaut, French bald since 26 & bold since forever! Right now, I am a 1st time entrepreneur in the making. 

I come from an IT & software agency background so deeply into B2B and old-fashioned processes. I came to realize that sustainability cannot be only about consumers and half-measures. I also realized IT Sustainability was much underrated and not understood by most companies. It came quite as a surprise for me since I always considered IT Sustainability as one of the best ways to merge both ROI & Sustainability to make the latter sound acceptable, actionable, and realistic. Having seen that, I wanted to make a change in my own way. 

My dedication came from the desire to be able to look my future kids in the eye and tell them that I tried to make the world a better place. 

I am also drawn to uncommon & less popular causes, which is why e-waste caught my attention. While it’s not as “buzzy” as plastic waste or consumer recycling, it has the potential to have a greater impact, especially in Asia.

Mimi Nguyen
General Manager - Handprint, Founding Member - The Matcha Initiative

I was born in Vietnam and grew up in France in Paris’ low income suburbs. My parents used to bring us to the park to have some outdoor activities and that’s where my father taught my siblings and I to observe, love and respect nature. He gave us perspective on our place in a much bigger ecosystem. 

At that time, we didn’t describe our family as “sustainable”. It was very pragmatic, we didn’t waste anything, we mended everything, saved and reused, because we just couldn’t afford not to :)

In 2018 in Singapore, after what felt like a long, unfulfilling professional tunnel on autopilot, I was forced to make a pause and took the opportunity to consider what I really wanted to do with my life (I know this resonates with many!)

Then I really realised how passionate I was about sustainability and for the first time, I considered making it my job. Nothing is easy when you don’t hold the right degrees or the right amount of money, so I co-created The Matcha Initiative to jump into action instead of procrastinating. That’s how you start an amazing experience with amazing people :)

Cherry on the cake: TMI helped me land my current job at Handprint, where we help businesses embrace the next step - Regeneration.
