Stephanie founded and leads the Embedding Project (www.embeddingproject.org), a collaborative initiative between researchers and practitioners working to embed sustainability. She brings together companies from across industries and around the world, helping them learn from one another and to understand their own sustainability journeys.

She has developed an online knowledge portal featuring a curated selection of the most relevant tools and resources – including practical guides and worksheets developed through her own research – to help corporate sustainability change agents more effectively embed sustainability into their organizations.
