Yoganathan Muttiah – Regarding “Ética”
Muttiah graduated from the Institute of Chartered Accountant in England & Wales and was an auditor at the College of Higher Environmental Studies and Sustainable Development in Paris. He created and was Secretary General of the Sustainable Development Club of the Superior Council of the Order of Accountants and Fiscal Auditors of France. He founded Alliances Stratégiques International S.A., an international sustainable development consulting company, with a major focus on India. In 2013, he also founded a French cooperative (Metamorphose) with more than 40 members to promote a change in the economic model and the social and ecological transition of companies and territories.
He is the leader of several networks such as the North-South Association that he founded in 1982, the ORÉE Association for the integration of biodiversity in the commercial and accounting strategy and management of companies, the Forum for Other Wealth Indicators (FAIR), the Institute Inspire about the functional economy and the Third World Debt Cancellation Committee (CADTM).
He participated in the Johannesburg Summit as part of the group of French NGOs, in the Mumbai and Dakar Social Forums, in the People’s Conference in Cochabamba (Bolivia), and the COP21 and 22 in Paris and Marrakech.
For Muttiah Yogananthan, the notion of borders, whether geographical, cultural or mental, is a brake on the ecological transition. It is essential to open these borders and overcome our national, ethical or religious identities to think as a “human being” or “living being” that is part of a Whole that is Nature in order to give future generations a chance of survival.
