Peiying Zhou joined Preferred by Nature in 2019.
I believe that sustainable development is the way forward for a better future. Forest plays a key role in the maintenance of biodiversity. I want to work with an organisation that puts sustainability as its vision and mission. Preferred by Nature, as a leading sustainable natural resource management solution provider, undoubtedly, is the best choice for me.
