ALC names new Forum 2022 speaker

Forum 2022 speaker

The Australian Logistics Council (ALC) says it will have a new speaker appearing at its Forum 2022 on May 25 in Sydney, the first since the start of the pandemic.

The new speaker will be Professor Veena Sahajwalla, Director of the UNSW Centre for Sustainable Materials Research & Technology (SMaRT Centre).

ALC notes Veena will lead a discussion at #Forum2022 by addressing the gathering of supply chain, freight, logistics and transport leaders on innovation, the circular economy, change, and thinking differently for sustainable outcomes.

Brad Williams, ALC CEO says Veena will provide a unique insight from outside of the industry, on how thinking differently with respect to sustainability and innovation across end-to-end supply chains is good for business.

“ALC is excited to host Professor Sahajwalla at our conference next month,” Brad says.

“Veena is an internationally acclaimed scientist, engineer and inventor, and has played a significant role in transforming recycling science,” he adds.

“Supply chains are essential for business and society, and materials circularity is central to helping address the globe’s biggest challenges,” Veena says.

“A combination of technical innovation and strong industry collaboration will deliver greater renewable energy, readdress the growing waste crisis, and enhance our manufacturing and sovereign capabilities,” she adds.

“As the Director of the SMaRT Centre and Leader of the new national Sustainable Communities and Waste Hub, Veena is actively collaborating with industry,” Brad says.

“Emerging technology and science are translated into real-world benefits,” Brad adds.

“Forum 2022 will be the first post-election opportunity for industry to come together and review the challenges of the pandemic, refocus on the growing freight task, consider the ongoing global challenges, and refocus our efforts at this crucial time.

“We have a world-leading line up of speakers, and conference truly provides the opportunity for industry to network, to engage policy experts and decision-makers.”
