This included the creation of world-class programs of advocacy and progressive public policy intervention, as well as environmental management, ethical finance and sustainability reporting. He has worked across sectors as diverse as Banking, Food, Pharmacy, Funerals and Travel. Paul established Up the Ethics in 2013 to help corporate pioneers of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability to take the next steps and help precipitate much needed systematic change.

Philip E. Monaghan is CEO of Infrangilis, a research agency on the green economy. Prior to launching Infrangilis, his career included half a decade with AccountAbility where he helped establish the NGO’s global advocacy leadership on corporate governance standards, before which he learned his trade in the private sector with engineers the WSP Group. He is also author of the books Hard to Make, Hard to Break and Sustainability in Austerity.
