  1. Given that we currently have a search on for a CEO at the Green Building Council of Australia, Sustainability Supply Chain School of Australia and Living Future Institute of Australia, wouldn’t it be amazing to see the 3 boards coming together to talk about how they could streamline into a single organisation to drive these 3 important initiatives?
