Josh Kahn

Josh graduated Monash University with a double-degree of Commerce and Global Studies, majoring in Sustainability and International Studies respectively.

He has since gone to work in Amsterdam with GRI, privately consult two-ASX 200 companies in sustainability reporting and circular economy strategy, and is now working as a management consultant in sustainability and social-licence advisory with Futureye.


Josh began his sustainability journey at Monash University, where he learnt that sustainability was one of the possible majors in commerce.  Studying both International studies and commerce gave him a multi-disciplinary and holistic understanding of sustainability across economic, social and environmental systems.

His career journey began in 2020, with an internship in Amsterdam at GRI, wherein he assisted the development of the revised 2021 GRI Standards. He holds a GRI exam certificate, which signifies robust understanding of the Standards.

Josh has then gone to work with Australian Centre for Corporate Social Responsibility (ACCSR) founder Dr. Leeora Black to privately consult two ASX 200 companies in delivering their first sustainability reports and shifting conventional business strategies to circular and regenerative models.

He now works as a management consultant at a sustainability and social licence advisory firm, Futureye, specialising in ESG, sustainability and collective impact work.

He is also a founder of the sustainable finance initiative, SUSTAINANCE, which aims to “simplify sustainable investment” for retail consumers.
