Joan Ko

Climate and Sustainability Services Leader, Australasia

Joan is an Associate Principal working in Arup's Advisory, Planning and Design team.

I lead Arup's Sustainable Development Advisory in Australasia. I am a consultant who helps organisations make sense of business and sustainability. My flavour of sustainability consulting is evidence-based. Every team I assemble brings clients breadth through its diversity, and depth through its individuals. To a climate change brief, I'll bring asset managers, psychologists and scientists. To an infrastructure procurement brief, I'll bring policy analysts, engineers and economists.

I am appointed by government to significant governance roles that fund and deliver action on climate change and the circular economy. I am proud of my long engagement in imagining, establishing, implementing and governing sustainability at Fishermans Bend, Australia’s largest urban renewal area.
