Founder - Laura Taal
After completing her degrees in Cultural Anthropology and Human Rights Law, Laura dedicated all her professional energy over the past 15 years to nudging, pushing and pulling big corporates in the direction of sustainable supply chains. First as a consultant at PwC, then as sustainable procurement manager at HEINEKEN International and finally as a business analyst at IDH, the Sustainable Trade Initiative.
In recent years Laura noticed that climate change has rapidly moved up on people's personal list of concerns and priorities. As a consequence, people are increasingly eager to play their part in addressing climate change and the issues that are exacerbated by it. Laura sees this willingness to act as an enormous potential for the positive change that the world needs.
However, it can be challenging to decide where to start and how far to go in adjusting our current lifestyle. With that in mind, in July of 2022 Laura founded REVIVER: her mission is to empower people to translate their concerns about the future of the planet and humanity, into action that they can take today. In this domain, her experience in driving data-driven change comes together with her passion for creating a healthier and fairer world.
Laura lives in Amsterdam with her husband, daughter and son.
