Afrer a few postings in oil and gas-rich countries in 2013-2014, she decided to work in sustainability and went back to school to get her master’s degree in Environmental management and policy.
Since graduating Carmen has worked in circular economy policy in Brussels, helping local and regional authorities translate EU into local policies and managing the largest waste prevention campaign in the EU; in high-tech consulting, with a focus on the automotive sector; and in research about the climate change and materials nexus in her capacity as climate change project manager at the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.
