I'm Murray Gray. I work to advance the Sustainability Revolution, and to contribute to the creation of a new economy that is regenerative and inclusive.
I work at the intersection of entrepreneurship, innovation and positive social and environmental impact. I do this through the co-creation, development and growth of new ventures creating positive social and environmental impact - helping both larger enterprises transform and ventures for good to grow.
I’m focused on driving transformation across 3 key pillars: helping larger enterprises shift to a more sustainable and circular operating model, helping truly transformative startups to grow, and working to develop broader ecosystems for creating impact to enable and accelerate this process.
