A more sustainable world requires new attitudes, approaches, skills and new ways of going about our business.

What was the most valuable thing you got out of CSL?

I developed an awareness of just how much change is already happening and the incredible support networks that are available to help me make change happen.

Why are you passionate about sustainability? What was the moment or event that made you decide to become a 'change maker' in your field?

I am a passionate advocate of resource efficiency and waste minimization. I truly believe that businesses can solve social problems while making a profit and that realising a more sustainable world requires new attitudes, approaches, skills and new ways of going about our business.

Why is leadership for sustainability important?

No matter whether the change you are trying to effect is on large or small scale, radical or incremental, global, domestic or local social change requires committed leadership to make it happen.

What do you plan to do next on your sustainability journey?

I want to continue demonstrating that the commercial and sustainability imperative can exist hand in hand and that sustainable procurement can be as a vehicle to simultaneously improve the bottom line and improve environmental and social outcomes.
