Paula Saldias

Senior Consultant

Australia

I have over seven years of experience delivering sustainability advisory services, specialising in strategy design, stakeholder engagement and impact measurement for social and environmental projects in Chile and Australia. This work has been in a diverse range of sectors including mining, energy, gas & oil and food manufacturing.  

I completed BSc (hons) in Sociology before finishing a Masters of Sociology in Chile. I’m currently completing my Masters of Environment at the University of Melbourne.

My favourite projects are those where I work in partnership with people to incorporate sustainability into the core of the companies. I especially enjoy facilitating the use of tools and standards for ongoing improvement. Some of the projects I enjoyed the most include:

·      Impact measurement: I led the design and implementation of impact measurement models for diverse industries, including Energy and Food Manufacturing. In these projects, I oversaw the data collection and analysis and supported clients’ understanding of the measurement process, the uses of the data and its applicability to inform decision making.

·      Strategy design: I developed sustainability strategies and community engagement strategies for different clients. The strategies supported clients to understand the impact produced by their operations and key initiatives to mitigate these impacts on the environment and the surrounding communities.

·         Stakeholder engagement: I developed multiple community consultation studies for mining, oil & gas, and energy companies. I led the design of measurement instruments, implementation of fieldwork and data analysis. Provided clients with tools for effective risk management through the improvement of stakeholder strategies. 

I work in sustainability because I believe that we can all contribute to build a better and fairer future.

In my spare time, I run, practice yoga, read and go to as many cultural gigs as I can, including festivals, art exhibitions and live music. I love planning outdoor trips and would love to learn surfing soon.
