It is a great pleasure to be part of Preferred by Nature.
Having had the opportunity to work for 6 years for RA-Cert, which has now become Preferred by Nature, I am familiar with the procedures and work environment. I already know the rope, so I can quickly adapt to the system.
As an agricultural engineer, I have always been passionate about sustainability programmes. I want to take part in Preferred by Nature's mission to build knowledge and capacity to integrate the approach to sustainability.
