Business Council for Sustainable Development in Hungary (BCSDH)
Irén Márta is an economist and communications specialist with significant international experience at multinational companies from different sectors. As the Managing Director of the Business Council for Sustainable Development in Hungary, she promotes and encourages sustainable practices, knowledge-sharing, and cooperation between actors of the Hungarian business sector. She believes in the importance of sustainable development and therefore strives to extend the issue of sustainability as widely as possible by presenting and supporting good practices both in her work and private life. Her extensive knowledge and experience was gained in international companies (Holcim Hungária Zrt., 2005-2015; Legrand Zrt., 1997–2004) in the fields of marketing, corporate relations, change management and integrated communication, which can be applied in the everyday life of BCSDH. Her professional work in disseminating the principles of sustainable construction in Hungary was recognised with two prominent, international awards in 2011: the Sabre Award and the European Excellence Award. Her credo is positive motivation, believing that building value on individuals can achieve corporate results. She also sees herself as a motivator and this brings the most joy in her work. In addition to her professional success, time spent with her family is what brings great happiness for her.
