The Combat Climate Change Team
Amit’s passion for sustainability started back in 2007 when he chose Climate Agenda as his MBA thesis topic. Thereafter, an 18-year progressive career in the shipping and logistics arm of the corporate world came to an end when a dream to tackle climate catastrophes kept him awake an entire night. He felt a moral responsibility to work on it and so left his cushy corporate life to pursue his dreams.
Amit proceeded to study about Climate Change at the University of Oxford, specialising in Climate Ethics and Regenerative Economics. Amit is also a certified ‘Changemaker for Climate’ from the UN Systems Staff College at Bonn.
