As the world faces increasingly complex trends — clean water, affordable energy, connectivity, environmental pollution, economic growth and climate change — the world needs innovators and problem solvers who aren’t afraid to reframe their challenges and think differently.
And that’s where Zoe Haseman comes in.
Responsible for developing and implementing Jacobs’ global sustainability strategy to ensure we deliver on our vision of providing solutions for a more connected, sustainable world, our Vice President of Global Sustainability Zoe helps our company, as well as our clients flip their biggest issues on their head to maximize more sustainable outcomes, drive efficiency and create a positive impact on the environment, society and the economy.
Better connecting our lines of business and end markets to create solutions that address global issues and our clients' toughest challenges is an enormous opportunity. And the timing for us to position ourselves to do this, with our PlanBeyond strategy and the launch of Jacobs’ new brand, is now.
