Ben Symons

Senior Specialist Natural Capital

Ben started his career in financial audit where he learned to analyse financial statements, assess risk, and understand how businesses work. Ben then pursued a passion for sustainability, working consulting across diverse issues and industries with large corporations and governments – e.g., climate-risk and resilience, sustainability reporting, and carbon neutrality. Across my sustainability journey I became particularly passionate about agriculture opportunities (including what many farmers are already doing) to simultaneously improve people, the planet, and profit. It is great to see food & fibre together in a nexus that regenerates the land, society, and economy.

I can be found spending time with friends and family, especially getting outside. Living in Melbourne there is always something novel and interesting on to check out too. I listen to lots of podcasts and try to find time to read.
Moreton Bay Fig is pretty hard to pass up, but Snow Gums are also mysterious and iconic.
