Isabel Garro is an atypical economist. After graduating in Business Administration and Management, she soon realized that theory was far removed from the realities of the working world. With an insatiable thirst for knowledge and driven by her relentless curiosity and her desire to reinvent the business world, she ventured into the field of sustainability when it was still an unknown concept to most.


Her professional career is as diverse as it is exciting. She has worked in the three pillars of the economy: the public sector, the private sector, and civil society holding high-level positions in the Government of Spain and the United Nations' leading sustainability initiative. She currently works as Chief Sustainability Officer for Votorantim Cimentos.


She is a renowned expert in sustainable development. Her extensive experience in this field has led her to co-lead Spain's commitments in this area, from the forefront of the main competent bodies, such as Special Advisor to the High Commissioner for the 2030 Agenda in the Presidency of the Government of Spain, or as the general director of the Spanish Network of the United Nations Global Compact for 14 years.


As one of the nation's leading specialists on the 2030 Agenda, Isabel has held top-level responsibilities as the Spanish representative in this area before the Council of the European Union. Additionally, she has chaired the Local Networks Advisory Group of the UN Global Compact and has been a member of the Advisory Committee of Transparency International Spain and the Ethics Council of Auchan Spain.
