If my life was a Venn diagram, it'd be equal parts creativity, sustainability and compassion.

My career disproves the myth that you can't make a living as a do-gooder.

Over the last 2 years, my creative work has contributed to the divestment of many millions of dollars out of fossil fuels and back into renewable energy and ethical companies. It’s my proudest achievement.

Previously, as Digital & Brand Manager for both Future Super & Cruelty Free Super, I spent most days ideating and executing advertising creative to hit our high growth targets, as well as optimising customer experience across various platforms.

Oh and I've been an avid Webflow fan, supporter and customer since 2014!

I'm a social and climate youth activist who has taken part in many programs and organizations seeking change and serving the SDGs by speaking out for youth and justice, and the importance of having youth involved in decision and policy-making when advocating for change.
I do live in a community where youth ideas, proposals, and actions are not so welcome, which is why I tried to take actions to present the youth voice at the table of discussions, representing my country at both national and international levels, believing that our voice could never be impersonated if we were not the ones addressing it.
I'm an SDSN fellow, the contact point of the Human Rights Working Group, a communication officer at UNMGCY, and the founder of the Together for Blue & Green initiative, where we do insist on valuing the blue and the green by taking some simple actions such as clean-up sessions within the oceans and seas, planting trees in rural or burned areas after well mending the soil, in addition to holding weekly workshops where we do introduce people to environmentalists and climate activists from all over the world and familiarize them with green business and impactful change-making stories.

In her early years, Margareth and her family lived in a very difficult environment due to the point where they had to emigrate to the United States to be safe and start over a new life far away from the conflicts and violence that ruled Colombia in the 90’s.

Margareth lived some of her middle school years influenced by the South and American culture and the vision to acquire international education. She saw infinite possibilities that could not be possible in her hometown Colombia and once she lived in the relative freedom of The United States, she knew she wanted to change some memories, re-write her story and inspire others no matter what their history might be.

Margareth speaks #Spanish, #English, and #German fluently. She studied marketing and hospitality management in Spain, foreign languages in Germany, and #Business in #London, having worked for numerous companies she developed knowledge in the world of finance, particularly in Industries such as #infrastructure, #realestate , #privateequity, #healthcare, #technology, and #ESG #investing.

Margareth's passion for traveling and global sustainable finances inspired her to create the vision and conceptualize #CapitalVariation, a #Start-up investment consultancy company that she considers her baby. She has curated it with the sole purpose of identifying potential projects that focus on (ESG) #environmental, her purpose is to impact finance leaders and increase awareness in the world of ESG investments.

Capital Variation’s why is to partner with C-level leaders who solve the world’s biggest challenges and are passionate about providing a solution to inequalities, bringing light to those entrepreneurs who thrive for positive change and impact in today's world.

She works with several business partners in #Colombia, the #UnitedStates, #Europe, #TheMiddleEast, and #Asia, all with a strong track record in the world of financial services, often she finds in them not only business partners but mentors, true friends, and visionaries.

The values which have been guiding her life are integrity, humility, and respect.

I lead the business team at Stabiliti - tracing carbon back to its roots. Our goal is to create trust and transparency in carbon offsets in order to incentivise more businesses and individuals to buy them. This is the lead domino that will lead to more farmers and landowners planting carbon capturing natural assets. This will increase supply and allow more businesses to offset completely - reducing the amount of carbon entering our atmosphere and ultimately going beyond and removing more than we are producing.

In order for this to happen at scale we are working with international businesses and projects, in domains such as infrastructure construction and global payments, to assist them with their carbon emission mapping and data collection. Once the source data is confirmed as accurate we then enable them to offset by choosing carbon capture projects that are relevant to their activities and locality.

Our unique proprietary technology, CarbonTrack, is able to fractionalise carbon offsets from the typical tonne measurement and go down to the femtogram. The ability to offset micro amounts of carbon emissions means we can price competitively and share the proceeds with our business partners, further incentivising them beyond compliance with emissions targets, by creating a new revenue stream.

This micro-offsetting is particularly relevant for transaction based business models such as payments, ticketing and any company where the majority of their emissions come from computer use.

My background is as an English lawyer specialising in blockchain technology.
