About my work

I am constantly trying to find new ways to change our current linear economy model to a more Cyclical or Circular model. Materials management and product design is key to this. My focus and passion lies within materials management with particular interest in waste avoidance, minimization practices and waste material recycling. I have been an environmental consultant since the end of 2003 and my current assignments involve a myriad of projects including, Cleaner Production Studies, Environmental Auditing, Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) processes, waste characterizations, development and implementation of Environmental Management Systems and the development of Integrated Waste Management Plans. I currently manage the Sustainability Division of the Cape Town Branch of JG Afrika and am also the Chairperson for the NPO EcoStandard, an Eco-Label for building products. I have recently also qualified as an Edge expert through the IFC.
