I am the National Sustainability Chair for the Society of Graphic Designers of Canada. I am a member of: The Ethics Practitioners Assoc of Canada and The Canadian Public Relations Society. In 2007 I was appointed to the Prov. of BC's Citizen's Conservation Council on Climate Action to recommend to the Secretariat how to help change behaviours.
My own company iD2 brought in an ethical policy in 2002 before sustainability was sexy because I've always thought it was!
I've been working for over 30 years in helping businesses implement programs internally to reduce their footprints. I published my first book "From Here to There" on energy use and transportation alternatives for school children in 1979. Yep, I'm that old.
