“Dr. Jaisheila Rajput joined our Selection Panel in June 2014 (47 business & sustainability specialists, architects, entrepreneurs and engineers were invited to join the panel). As a sustainability expert, Dr. Rajput was a very valuable addition. She contributed particularly important insights when looking at the use of materials, cycle of production and design in each of the solutions. She also enthusiastically and passionately shared her assessments around broader sustainability issues.”
