Praveen works on Sustainability in its widest sense, covering all three key elements – the environmental, social and economic aspects. The common thread that runs through my varied career is my approach of being interdisciplinary and collaborative to find practical solutions that are ambitious and effective. I currently lead BBC Studios’ sustainability strategy and employee engagement activities.
I work closely across departments at BBC Studios to minimise our negative environmental impacts globally. I help us go beyond meeting environmental compliance requirements, to effectively embed environmental considerations into “business as usual” as we continue to be a leading media company.
I also lead our employee engagement programme to create a company in which colleagues feel valued and are proud to be part of, a company that has a diverse and inclusive workforce, and one that contributes positively to the local communities across Europe, Asia, the Americas and Africa.
Having lived and worked in three continents, and progressed in various academic, not-for-profit and private sector roles, I am adept at, and enjoy working with people of diverse backgrounds, and across the full depth and breadth of an organisation’s structure.
