Deeti comes from a retail and commercial banking background and has spent over 7 years in the finance sector. In 2006, Deeti left the world of mainstream finance to pursue her interest in bridging the worlds of sustainability and business. She obtained an MSc in Business and Environment from Imperial College and went on to work for Trucost, where she worked with investors and companies to integrate environmental sustainability in the investment and lending process and in business decisions. More recently, she has worked on projects in the sustainable fashion sector with organisations such as Made-By, WRAP and CottonConnect, analysing the commercial viability of alternative business models that are designed to reduce dependency on environmental resources and reduce environmental impact.
Deeti is interested in combining her financial acumen and experience with her interest in integrating sustainability performance in all aspects of decision making across sectors.
