I believe in the leadership and the mission of the Sustainable Packaging Coalition. Over the years a lot of good alignment work has been accomplished thru the SPC.
Now, as the initiatives have matured the conversations have become more complex. Members, today are at varying levels of sophistication in their internal adoption of sustainability strategies. This means their demands of the SPC are also going to become more complex in the coming years.
I want to serve on the SPC EC to help navigate these complex issues, diverse trends and sometimes conflicting approaches towards a common goal. The multi-stakeholder approach of the SPC is even more relevant in the coming years and working on the right goals, strategies and projects will be very important and will foster progress.
I believe I can complement the EC with my own unique brand of experience and expertise. Over the last 25 years, I have worked with many different companies and helped them improve their product and package design, development and launch processes. I have founded Trayak as a sustainability consulting and solutions company and grown our portfolio of sustainability solutions. I believe we are pretty unique in our offering of solutions and services to mainstream sustainability. We frequently have sustainability conversations across a range of industries (beyond CPG), which will allow me to bring the best thinking and practices to the table at SPC.
Most strategy implementations have to occur along the People, Process and Technology axis. I have experience along all these axis and can both lead and work together in a team towards common goals.
