Josephine has been an active promoter of the low-carbon, creative, green/blue economy since 2002, and is the Founding Director of Sustainable Value Creation Ltd. Her work includes communicating systems thinking real-time in complex dialogues with key decision-makers.

Previously, Josephine worked with the Swedish Bio-Alcohol Fuel Foundation (BAFF) which assists in Sweden’s shift towards sustainable transport using renewable fuels. BAFF has spent the last 20 years developing an end-to-end systems chain for ethanol to be adopted in Sweden as a renewable fuel contributing to independence from oil. As a representative of BAFF in Africa, Josephine supported national governments in developing long-term national programs for sustainable biofuels development. This helped enable them to leverage the opportunity for long term, sustainable economic and social development.
