Event Details

This is our last event for 2013 and we are pleased to announce our speaker: Jonathan Wood
Sustainability and Environment Manager, Crown Melbourne Limited

In 2003 Jonathan started as a Mechanical Engineer and ESD Consultant at Umow Lai & Associates in South Yarra.  In his 5 years there he gained a solid grounding in building services engineering as well as environmental sustainability in the built environment.  During this time he developed the ESD consultancy arm of the organisation (Umow Lai Environment) and delivered a wide range of exciting and innovative projects.  This included 2 of Australia’s first 5-star Green Star buildings – Kangan Batman TAFE and Hume City Council Offices as well as one of Australia’s first 6-star Green Star Fitouts for Umow Lai’s new offices.

In 2007 he headed to London to work for one of their leading Sustainability Consulting Engineering firms, Fulcrum Consulting.  As project leader on a range of projects in the education, health and commercial sectors, Jonathan gained significant insight into how sustainability in the built environment is applied in the UK. As head of Fulcrum’s internal sustainability committee he was also exposed to how sustainability is applied to an organisation’s operations at a micro level.

 

The seed of Sustainability Management had been sewn in London and he was keen to return to Australia and work for an organisation with a large environmental footprint.  Luckily for him, Crown Melbourne was looking and in 2010 he became their Sustainability & Environment Manager. 

Jonathan's skill set quickly expanded from energy and water in the built environment to include waste, procurement and staff education programs at an operational level.  After a successful 4 years which has seen a reduction in our greenhouse gas emissions intensity of 15% at Crown Melbourne, the future is looking even more exciting as Sustainability is extended to Crown’s Perth and Sydney properties.

Make sure you are there to join in the fun.

An open invitation is extended to all who are “passionate about sustainability” to come and mingle with like minded people and listen to a speaker share their sustainability story.

Scheduled from 6 pm - 8 pm, most of the evening is networking. There is a short presentation and guest speaker at ~7 pm.

When you register to attend, please share with your social networks and encourage other interested friends and colleagues to register and join us for a great evening.  Our volunteers can have professional name tags ready for collection at the door.

Organiser

Sustainability Drinks Australia

Sustainability Drinks emerged with a casual get together of ten people and now, 7 years on, offers an environment which nurtures and fosters the sharing of sustainability success stories and hosts thousands of people each month across Australia.


The events run from 6-8pm on a select day of every month and a speaker presents for 10 minutes at 7pm.


The Sustainability Drinks belief is that through the sharing of ideas, and stories of success, we can help create the change that we want to see in this world.


These events provide an opportunity to meet other people interested in creating a more sustainable world, exchange ideas and hear different perspectives about the social and environmental challenges we face. Attendees meet a wide range of passionate people who are interested in making a positive difference.


At Sustainability Drinks you buy your own drinks (we provide some complimentary nibbles) and the atmosphere enables people to introduce themselves and feel comfortable with meeting new people and exchanging ideas. We encourage people to join us and invite friends and colleagues who share the same values.


An open invitation is extended to all who are “passionate about sustainability” to come and mingle with like minded people and listen to a speaker share their sustainability story.

When you register to attend, please share with your social networks and encourage other interested friends and colleagues to join us for a great evening.
