“In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.”
Carmen joined PGC in 2014 after graduating from Lincoln University, Christchurch in Environmental Management and Planning, minoring in Sustainable Business.
She enjoyed looking into the Christchurch Central City Plan draft on proposed public transportation system after the devastating earthquake in 2011 as part of her project on sustainable development in university. Her experience as Student Representative in the Department of Environmental Management Lincoln University has allowed her to work closely with the local community groups in understanding environmental and sustainable matters.
Carmen is currently promoting Penang Green Office Project Certification, aiming at creating a sustainable and conducive environment in the working place. She believes that our office is also our ‘second’ home and comfort leads to productivity. Other projects that she is managing include Penang Rainwater Harvesting Incentive and Food Waste Challenge Incentive. She is also looking into the possibilities of transforming KOMTAR into a resource-efficient building with external parties.
Carmen is outspoken and helpful. She is a true foodie who can cook and bake. You can basically ask her if you are looking for any good food or cafe in Penang. She is also crazy with anything in PINK!
