At the end of August, the Hunter JO’s Regional Policy and Programs Coordinator, Eloise Lobsey, presented at a webinar for local government in Western Australia. The focus of the webinar was Procurement in a Circular Economy and was hosted by the Eastern Metropolitan Regional Council (EMRC).
Eloise presented on the Hunter JO’s Circular Economy procurement project with a focus on context, outcomes, and key learnings from the first phase of the project. The aim of this was to share our journey with other regions looking to embark on a similar scope of work.
Other speakers at the webinar included Tanya Harris, Head of Sustainable & Ethical Procurement (Acting) at Edge Environment and Mike Ritchie, Managing Director at MRA Consulting.
