Our CEO, Vanessa Cullen, was named as a finalist in the Finder Green Awards in the Green Leader of the year category. The Finder Green Awards celebrates Australian companies and individuals leading the way on sustainability in their sectors.
Vanessa has spearheaded a range of circular economy sustainability initiatives to address the wastage created by the commercial interior design and fit-out industry. Currently, up to 90% of de-fit materials and furnishings are transported to landfill. Vanessa personally undertook extensive research, stakeholder mapping and design-thinking to capture and tackle the scope of this problem ahead of further research, advocacy, and solutions development.
Vanessa assembled a team of professionals to create systematic change within the industry, empowered by a user-friendly digital application that the team has under development. The application aims to assist premises to sustainably remove de-fit waste. This global ‘first to market’ solution has the power to create a new circular, sustainable and profitable ‘business usual’. It enables users to save up to 100% of all commercial, retail and hospitality fit-out materials and furnishings from landfill, whilst also spurring new product innovation and economic opportunities.
