Following a sustainable path
For Deloitte United States principal Kathryn Pavlovsky, a passion for the environment follows her at every turn.
I spent many of my formative years in Europe, and when I returned to the United States, I was keenly aware of the differences between the United States and Europe regarding sustainability. I later pursued a degree in environmental economics, learning about environmental, social, and economic trade-offs, and the value of natural resources.
I started my career valuing environmental liabilities and supporting Deloitte U.S. audit clients with environmental disclosures and liabilities. I realized that the organization’s four business functions and industry focus create a unique opportunity to address clients’ growing sustainability challenges, from strategy to operational integration to governance needs. So I submitted the idea for a cross-functional service offering related to sustainability through “Innovation Quest,” an internal Deloitte U.S. contest aimed at gathering innovative ideas on how to better serve clients.
It’s really important to do what you love because your interest and passion are going to be reflected in your work. And anything’s possible—I think my story applies to anybody in the organization.Back to top
