Josiana Arippol

JosianaPartner and founder of Ética da Terra, Josiana Arippol graduated in Business Administration from Fundação Getúlio Vargas (EAESP-FGV, 1978). She started her career as a researcher in the department of economics and social sciences of FGV, working, later on, in the managing of Human Resources of Ferrovia Paulista S.A (FEPASA). She organized the first courses of Ecological Agriculture and Healthy Food in São Paulo, in the 1980’s, strongly supported by nutritionists and doctors. She was a school educator and steepened herself in school organization and administration. After that, she attended the Centre for Social Development, in England, and worked on health and economic projects for the youth.

However, when she first got in touch with European social and ecological banks, Josiana centered her work on developing the conceptual and practical parts of sustainable finance. There an intensive interchange started with TRIODOSBANK, in the Netherlands , that lasts until the present moment. In 1994, she was invited by Federação Brasileira de Bancos (FEBRABAN) to an annual meeting in which she worked on the subject The Bank of the Future.

Currently living in Brazil, she continues to participate in businesses of the sector in Holland and Switzerland, also facilitating study and observation groups with managers, consultants and youngsters in Brazil and Europe.

From 2006 to 2008, she organized international events at Fundação Getúlio Vargas, creating a broad discussion network on sustainability made up by scientists, researchers, lawyers, doctors, nutritionists, economists, and agricultural workers.

“My motivation comes from the certainty that Brazil can reach a brilliant future keeping itself ecologically balanced. This means that it will continue to be a great global producer of commodities, ensuring, however, the quality and safety of its products”.
