Anna works to develop strategic partnerships and innovative environmental reporting solutions based on open source data formats for Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs). Her current focus is developing, integrating, and scaling the openEPD standard digital format across EPD program operators to enable a way to consistently disclose the life cycle emission results of products in a credible, streamlined, and universally understood manner. With her combined skills and background in product development, program management, stakeholder engagement, standards development and research, her background positions her to translate strategic initiatives into scalable business solutions and tactical execution plans that drive climate change policy. Anna has provided transparency, sustainability and operations consulting services for over a decade, led NA’s largest EPD Program for over seven years, and is a Life Cycle Assessment Certified Professional (LCACP).
