Andrew Budsock is the youngest board member of GSC, 25, having recently graduated with his Master’s in Conservation Biology from Columbia University. Andrew is a published scientist with a deep interest in solving nuanced ecological challenges that arise from climate and global change. Specifically, his research at Columbia focused on using satellite remote sensing to understand how drought, likely increasing with climate change, impacts tropical forests. Now, however, he is transitioning into the private sector with the aim of applying data-driven approaches to incorporating sustainability into business strategies.
He brings with him extensive global experience in private and nonprofit sectors, with a diverse background in foreign language, writing, research, and analytics. He is a former U.S. State Department fellow in the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professional Program — where he worked in Munich at the innovation consultancy Hyve GmbH. In Hong Kong, he represented the US as an Environment and Sustainability Delegate at the Harvard Project for Asian and International Relations. He also is an editor for Impakter Magazine, where he created a series on the UN Sustainable Development Goals that aims to communicate the goals to a millennial audience. He has also worked as a social media consultant. Now, Andrew works as a consultant involved with environmental due diligence and sustainability strategy at ERM.
At GSC, Andrew is involved with the official program including bringing strategic new relationships to GSC, hosting webinars on topics such as implementing the SDGs into business, and leading the online discussions with our 3S Award finalists. Andrew is the chair of the 2018 GSC Annual Meeting: Unlocking the Business Value of Sustainability Through Innovation. Andrew is passionate about improving the world through sustainability and looks forward to continuing to advocate for businesses to pursue profit with purpose.
