It has always been important for me that my work makes a positive impact on people and the planet and working for Preferred by Nature allows me to do just that. I enjoy working for a mission driven organisation that supports environmental and social sustainability. Further, it’s very rewarding to be able to see the positive impact our work has on land-use and sustainable supply chains first hand.
