Most people have a job or a profession, but only a lucky few have a mission. The difference between a job and a mission is that when unexpected things happen and you’re on a mission, you recognize that you are starting the next leg of your journey. Circularity and ESG guide Lorraine Jenks is one of the lucky few.
Lorraine is the Founder and CEO of Hotelstuff/Greenstuff, online non-profit directories of eco-friendly products. She is also a TEDx speaker and a green procurement, supply chain, and circularity specialist. Her professional journey through the sustainability movement has brought her into relationships with Vice President Al Gore, the United Nations, the Environmental Protection Agency, and more. Her personal mission is to find an ecologically friendly version of every product and service in her purchasing manual.
In this session, part of the Supply Chain Leadership Across Africa series, Lorraine joins hosts Scott Luton and Jenny Froome, Chief Operating Officer at SAPICS, to discuss:
• Having conversations about ‘green’ business in the earliest days of the movement
• Why frustration is what gives her the energy she needs to keep pushing forward
• How she connects with people in industries like hospitality, mining, banking, and more to help them understand how to operationalize the principles of sustainability and circularity
