Anjila is a Danish environmental engineer and anthropologist. Her research at the Technical University of Denmark has led her to publish a paper in a peer reviewed journal on the emerging topic of absolute sustainability. Here she presents a methodology to define when something is actually sustainable, rather than just more sustainable than something else. Since its publication in 2020 her work has already been widely cited, and Anjila is passionate about clarifying what it means to be sustainable to help us focus our sustainability efforts where they matter most. Anjila lives in London with her partner and their 1-year old son, and works as a sustainability consultant for an international consultancy focusing on climate change.
