Cofounder and Chief Community Officer
Why I work for Seismic:
To bring together bright, talented, values-aligned professionals to create positive social and environmental impact at scale, by helping our clients be forces for good in the world.
I was an internal corporate practitioner for many years, and now work as a trusted external impact advisor. I really enjoy helping organisations accelerate their sustainability journey and bringing communities together to generate real change.
Some companies I’ve worked with:
Skype, innocent, Microsoft, Ramborn, Degroof Petercam, Luxexpo, Coca-Cola European Partners, Sipsmith, Lily’s Kitchen, TED, Facebook and NASA.
A seismic change I’d like to see in the future:
I’d like to see the private sectors’ attitudes towards collaboration and transparency change, as I believe it is going to require radical collaboration and transparency to create the change we need in the world.
Where I like to be:
I was born and raised in a small town in the US, with the family name Schmidt, only to spend the second half of my life as an expat living in Germany. I’m now based in Luxembourg.
Hear from Seismic Cofounder Andy Schmidt on what makes the B Corp status different from other sustainability-oriented certification programmes.
The key message of Earth Day 2021 is ‘Restoring our Earth’ and as we celebrate Earth Day here at Seismic, and how this message resonates with our mission, it gives us all a chance to reflect on the last year and the drastic changes everyone has experienced since Earth Day 2020.
