The Circular Economy

Speakers:

Louise Swift
Interface

Abstract

This presentation is based on an inclusive business model with a net-positive social, business and environmental impact. The Net-Works programme evolved from a need to find a better way of doing business.By working together in close partnership, Interface and ZSL are creating a solid business solution with long-term positive impacts on marine and freshwater ecosystems while also providing financial opportunities to some of the poorest people in the world.Net-Works enables fishing communities in developing countries to sell waste nets back into a global supply chain – Interface receives a fully recycled source of nylon for carpet tile production, and the local community receives long-term incentives to protect their natural environment.

Louise has been with Interface for over 20 years and has developed a wealth of experience through a variety of roles within the business including Customer Service, Public Sector/A&D Account Manager, Northern Regional Director and currently, Public Sector Sales Director. In her current role, Louise leads our strategy for Government and has been given the opportunity to lead Interface’s journey with Government initiative BIM, which began back in 2013. She is also a driving force in the development of a comprehensive tertiary education strategy, focused on working closely with universities and colleges to improve their environmental credentials. Louise is also a sustainability ambassador for Interface /p>
