Paula Guillaumet

In a nutshell, tell us about yourself.

My passion for preserving the environment and promoting social equality moves me to take on new challenges and find new ways to contribute. I believe working at E Co offers the chance of aligning my working hours with my values, which is extra motivating when you see the change we are driving!

I grew up and studied in Argentina: Architecture, first, and my interests led me to take master’s studies in Energy and Sustainability afterwards. I am interested in complex systems and “smart” solutions that use data for decision making. My expertise lies in developing sustainable policies and projects related to the energy transition, climate change, and circular economy. I have broad experience in the private and public sectors and collaborating as a freelance with NGOs.

What are your loves?
I am a plants-person, I could cover my whole house with them! I like to observe how they change over time and react to new conditions.

How do you like to spend your weekends?
My weekend is not felt as such if I don’t go out to enjoy nature in good company.

What makes you laugh?
I have an easy laugh, and I love puns.

When are you happiest?
I am a very curious person: I love being amazed by a new culture or a new way of doing things.

What is the title of your perfect work project?
Climate change cascade effect in the built environment applied to Latin American cities and how to improve their resilience.

What’s the best thing about your job?
Diversity: diverse people with diverse backgrounds, working in diverse assignments from diverse clients in diverse topics for a good cause.
