Apoorve passionately describes the mission of his life as ‘building a sustainable and collaborative world’. He is driven by creating meaningful impact from farmer to sector level and bursts with ideas and enthusiasm to make it happen. Complementing this, his commitment to challenging the most complex sustainability issues makes Apoorve a real sustainability leader.
Apoorve holds a double Masters, one in Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi and one in Business from INSEAD, France. He especially enjoys and excels in working on complex problems at the intersection of technology, business, and policy. His academic background in business and technology has allowed Apoorve to quickly adjust to and translate complexity into tangible and manageable concepts. In addition, his training as a biologist has allowed Apoorve to spontaneously appreciate systemic interdependencies and complexities.
Currently, Apoorve is working his magic with our Sustainable Sector Transformation teams. Previous to joining NewForesight, Apoorve worked as a sustainability professional for 8 years with governments and Fortune 500 companies in India and Europe. A key focal area of his work was agri-based sustainable bio-fuels produced from agricultural residues from farms or agro-processing plants. In this arena, whilst Apoorve led technology development for bio-fuels at a Fortune 500 Oil & Gas firm, he also worked as part of government task forces responsible for establishing the multi-stakeholder advance bio-fuel value chain in India.
