“My work is my best passion, singing and dancing my best hobbies.”
Stephani Carter (1980) is the founder and principal of Ecoammo, a “for-purpose” sustainability consulting firm based in Edmonton, Canada, committed to providing sustainable building design and construction. “At our company we think that finding solutions to environmental issues is the true key to moving forward and seeing a better future,” says Stephani. “I believe in integrity and in the importance of celebrating individualities in running a business.” Traveling the world for many years because of her job, Stephani realized business should take more care of the environment. “I was disappointed about practices, above all in the building industry,” explains Stephani. “I became more and more conscious of facing these challenges and I think that the world itself is currently going through a transition moment, changing its way of thinking and acting about the environment, even if with baby steps.” Funk songs and swing dances are great passions, and when she has some free time she likes to play at concerts and parties with her band. At the beginning of next year, her company will move to its new headquarters, the biggest green commercial building in western Canada. “If you really want to change the world, you need to live by being an example for other people, and that’s what we are doing.
