The Green Party has welcomed the appointment of Abbie Reynolds as Executive Director of the Sustainable Business Council (SBC).
“We look forward to working with Abbie Reynolds at the Sustainable Business Council, which plays a vital role in transitioning New Zealand towards a smart, high value, low-carbon economy,” Green Party Co-leader James Shaw said.
“Ms Reynolds’ background driving sustainability in the ICT industry bodes well for the development of more high-tech, low-pollution businesses in New Zealand.
“We also want to acknowledge the excellent work of outgoing Executive Director Penny Nelson and wish her all the best for her new role at the Ministry for the Environment.
“Ms Nelson has made an extraordinary contribution in her time at the helm of the SBC. On her watch, leading New Zealand businesses have made significant progress towards more sustainable business practices and working together to find solutions to some of our most pressing challenges, such as climate change and long-term unemployment,” Mr Shaw said.
