Here he was responsible for implementing their Sustainable Living Plan, which linked environmental objectives to business operations.</p> <p>While working with Unilever, Godfrey achieved the <a href="https://www.rainforest-alliance.org/" target="_blank">Rainforest Alliance Certificate</a> for three consecutive years and created numerous plans to prevent biodiversity loss and restore ecosystems.</p> <p>Also, he worked on the development and implementation of their Environmental and Social Strategies.</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="classy-style--margin-bottom paragraph paragraph--type--bp-simple paragraph--view-mode--default paragraph--id--3078 paragraph--width--full" style=""> <div class="paragraph__column"> <p>Later, he worked as a Freelance Consultant, providing professional advice and expertise on sustainability issues using his diverse experience.</p> <p>Now, he serves as the Assistant Environmental Officer at UNHCR. His work with this refugee agency has centred around offering advice on alternative sustainable cooking energy programmes, ensuring they are sustainable and compliant.</p> <p>Godfrey shares what keeps him going:</p> <blockquote> <p>“The issue of sustainability needs to start from home, and this needs to rise from the fact that environmental resources are vital to us. We need to protect, conserve, and sustainably use these limited natural resources.</p> </blockquote> <p>My value has always been to be a custodian and take the responsibility of managing our limited natural resources and taking this knowledge to the general public, family, friends, and colleagues.”</p> <p>He strongly believes we all must do this to ensure a balanced world for all living organisms. Godfrey is also harnessing the power of social media to drive change:</p> <p>“I speak to groups, people one-on-one, and communities to discuss our current problems. Social media has provided us with a great platform to do this!”</p> <p>About winning the Sustainability Leader of the Year award, he shares:</p> <blockquote> <p>“For me, winning this award means so much. This is my first-ever sustainability award with global recognition. The award only motivates me to do more work in this area and continue inspiring others to do right by the environment.</p> </blockquote> <p>It means so much in terms of my career and is a huge personal milestone for me.”</p> <p>Organisers of this award believe that we need more courageous sustainability leaders taking risks and leading the way, but we also need to support them on their journey.</p> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-background-style field--type-list-string field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Background style</div> <div class="field--item">Light</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-sponsored field--type-boolean field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Sponsored?</div> <div class="field--item">No</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden field--item">2022.

We are trained and seduced to think of success primarily in material terms, money, consumption, things we own, or external power and reputation.</p> <p>This is not optimal for a happy life. It is not a resilient strategy – as it is vulnerable and exposed to the mercy of others or of external fortune. But actually, some research found that these people with a materialistic focus are less happy and even less resilient.
