Alicia Raimondi brings nearly a decade of extensive forestry, supply chain, and corporate engagement experience to WWF’s Forests Forward program, where she advances corporate partnerships. Alicia focuses on implementing science-driven strategies related to sourcing, forest management, and high-integrity nature-based solutions (NbS) that keep forests thriving for people, nature, and the climate.
Before joining WWF, Alicia worked as a supply chain associate for the Rainforest Alliance and as a senior responsible sourcing specialist for Preferred by Nature. In these positions, Alicia evaluated corporate clients to established supply chain and sourcing standards and advised on responsible sourcing strategies within the forest and agricultural sectors.
Her passion for conservation stems from a lifelong connection to nature and sustainability. While earning her Bachelor of Arts in mathematics from the University of North Carolina Wilmington, Alicia established a service to transport students’ recyclables to the local recycling center. This experience propelled her toward an environmental career.
Alicia received a Master of Science in natural resources from North Carolina State University. For her master’s thesis, she studied the impacts of ecotourism on communities living in the Tapajós National Forest in Brazil. After graduating, Alicia continued to work for the university on several research projects, including nonmarket valuation of US forests and on-the-ground impacts of forest management certification in Mexico.
