For the past fifteen years, Kyla has led the development of corporate sustainability programs for mid-sized companies. Passionate about the need to link sustainability strategy with business objectives, she has consistently developed sustainability programs which operate as profit centers.
Kyla spent seven years in the petroleum sector where she led the stakeholder and sustainability efforts of the first company to develop coalbed methane and shale gases in Canada. Her efforts led to a national award for leadership in sustainability while the materials she developed to inform and educate were subsequently adopted by the industry as primary outreach tools. More recently, Kyla led the development of a corporate sustainability program for an integrated paper manufacturer where she helped drive down operational costs and drive efficiencies resulting in over $1million in annual savings. She also increased employee engagement with regards to sustainability over 50% within 2 years. Kyla has led and participated in many industry committees regarding sustainable packaging, extended producer responsibility, transparency and reporting. Tapped repeatedly by customers to advise on sustainability and sustainable packaging strategy, Kyla recognized the demand within mid-sized companies for external guidance. Three Peaks Consulting was launched in early 2014 to meet this need.
