JP Leous
Senior Manager

'Pursue excellence. Nothing else is worth your time'. This motto inspires and challenges me across every aspect of my life - including my approach to helping clients push the sustainability agenda to the next level. The dogged pursuit of excellence forces one to embrace creativity, fear, ingenuity, and collaboration. Nothing less will address the issues we face, and nothing else is worth our time.

Based in New York, JP’s role as Senior Manager entails leading multiple client projects across a range of sectors, as well as spearheading business development opportunities. Over his career, JP has driven client and stakeholder solutions within financial, institutional/governmental, retail, energy, and non-governmental organizations. Prior to joining SustainAbility JP worked on and off Capitol Hill with a diverse collection of civil society organizations focused on a number of climate-related legislative campaigns. JP has also served as a Lecturer at The George Washington University’s School of Public Health and Health Services.

A Returned Peace Corps Volunteer, JP received his graduate degree from Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs, where he co-founded the school’s first prize for student-led sustainability-focused projects—The Award for Progressive Sustainability.
