Measuring is knowing

This week we introduce Ivo. Ivo is our very first data analyst. He is basically the data guardian of Orbisk! He makes sure that all data is correct and makes sure it can be visualized for our clients. He has a central role and works with all the different teams on different projects. All this, he can accomplish whilst playing on his harmonica.

How are you paying attention to sustainability?

“I am originally from Portugal and I moved to The Netherlands 5 years ago. I really liked the country so I decided to stay. When I made this decision, I also started to pay more attention to the environment and nature. So I started to reduce my carbon footprint with small stuff that I could do. One of these things is finding a job close to home with a company that will positively contribute to climate change.”

Why did you choose to work for Orbisk?

“For a number of reasons. My main reason is the positive contribution to climate change. I wanted to reduce my carbon footprint by working closer to my home and use my skills for good.

"We are part of the company as much as the company is part of us.“

Besides, I really enjoy being part of the process of the growth of the company. We are part of the company as much as the company is part of us.“

Why do you think preventing food waste is important?

“Only because we have no idea of how much food we are throwing away. The beginning of improving a process comes with measuring that process and then acting on that. After that we must hope that people work together to address climate change.”
