After five and a half years I am leaving ECO-Buy. It has been a period of huge change for the organisation as we have progressed from 100% government funded to an independent not for profit generating all of its own funds. And most recently merging with Net Balance, which raises ECO-Buy to a national level as part of the largest sustainable supply chain group in Australia.
ECO-Buy is better placed than ever before to assist with the revolution that is taking place across Australian supply chains. Sustainable procurement is undoubtedly ‘the next big thing’ and those organisations that embrace it will surely be the organisations that grow and prosper in challenging economic times, as they are more innovative and resource efficient.
I leave ECO-Buy to take up the role of interim CEO with Beyond Zero Emissions. I wish all ECO-Buy members, clients and supporters well and encourage you to continue pursuing opportunities to create a sustainable supply chain.
