The Sustainable Business Studio operates at the intersection of digital technology and sustainability – focusing on bringing together new know-how, expertise and competence for Globant clients. It will provide organizations and stakeholders with the tools to support climate action and perform as responsible businesses.
"As we evolve our organization, we believe that we have a commitment to helping our clients reinvent themselves. For a long time, the concept of sustainability has focused mostly on environmental issues, but we believe that global sustainable development should take into consideration a holistic approach where people, profit and planet are interconnected.

To lead this Studio, Globant has appointed Elena Morettini, a geologist with a PhD in Isotope Geochemistry and a long lasting background in RD&D in the energy industry, ready to face the challenge of the convergent journey between digitalization and sustainability.

"We need a new code of conduct for each and every business that's based on climate change awareness, transparency and sustainable strategies in respect to people and planet."
