Our Why

ECOSavvy was born out of frustration and the realisation of the inadequacy of our current economic and cultural systems to deliver just, equitable and sustainable outcomes.

Working on diverse sustainability initiatives over many years, and very aware of the urgency with which we must stabilise carbon emissions, it was observed that the sustainability / ESG sector involves people of immense intelligence, talent, and good will and a determination to act in alignment with values. 

Yet, the reality is that the decisions and behaviours of individuals, organisations, businesses and governments are largely determined by constraints impressed upon them by an increasingly unfit for purpose economic model – one that we created over 200 years ago, and which has created all manner of obstructing laws, regulations, commerce and cultural practices.

And, it struck, that nothing significant would change until that economic system changed.

The journey from there to now has taken three years. The period ‘in between’ took longer than anticipated, yet having taking the journey, we are excited about what can be achieved.

As the old systems begin to break down, the opportunity to design new ones emerges. 

We live in exciting times and because there is a lot at stake.

Let us hope and act like - we’ve got this!
