These Hinrich Scholars represent eight nationalities: Canada, Chile, China, India, Indonesia, Portugal, UK and USA. They join the global network of 250 Hinrich Foundation Alumni Association members and Hinrich Global Trade Leader Scholars who represent 22 nationalities.
“Central to trade sustainability is ensuring that participants address the triple bottom line: people, planet and profit. This is not intuitive: Sustainable trade practices must be taught,” said Alex Boome, Program Director of the Hinrich Foundation.
“From universities in Singapore, Hong Kong and Auckland to London, France and Washington, D.C., our Hinrich Global Trade Leaders are developing next-generation thinking to formulate and implement sustainable trade solutions that balance environmental stewardship, societal imperatives and economic benefits,” Boome said. “This is critical to ensure global trade is sustainable and mutually beneficial for all participants.”
One Hinrich Global Trade Leader Scholar, Christopher Wong, INSEAD MBA class of 2022, said: “Thanks to the Hinrich Foundation, I am empowered to lead the change in my industry, advocating for sustainable global trade through the projects that we work on, the materials that we use, and the standards that we uphold.”
Another Scholar, Catalina Troncosco Rojas, London School of Economics Executive Global Master’s in Management class of 2023, said: “Hinrich Foundation has given me the opportunity to become a worldwide leader, connecting Latin America with Asia to keep on transforming the B2B transactions into a more global, sustainable and equitable manner.”
