I'm Murray Gray. I work to advance the Sustainability Revolution, building solutions to sustainability challenges through business.
I do this through the co-creation, development and growth of new projects and ventures - I’m focused on collaborating with others to build these solutions. I believe that now and increasingly in the future sustainability will be the ultimate driver for innovation.
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.
