Sustainability: the smart thing to do – Elisa Moscolin, Executive Vice President of Sustainability, Sage

About This Episode

Also joining Michael is Elisa Moscolin, Executive Vice President of Sustainability for Sage, the integrated accounting, payroll and payment systems market leaders supporting the ambition of the world’s entrepreneurs. With a mission to transform the way people think and work, and enable organisations to thrive, Sage grew from a small business itself to one of the UK’s most successful scaled up stories, and a member of the FTSE100 with 11,000 employees around the world. 

Elisa joined Sage from Santander where she was Head of Sustainability, and prior to that Sustainability and CSR Specialist and Project Manager at Vodafone. Today, she’s also a board member for the Chartered Banking Institute. 

But if you thought this was where the story began, you’d be wrong because it begins with a trip to Ecuador at age 16, where Elisa said it changed her life and made sustainability her mission.
