John Tuxworth – President of the AGDF

BE Collective’s Managing Director John Tuxworth has accepted the role of President at the Australian Green Development Forum (AGDF). 

The AGDF seeks to accelerate the adoption of sustainable practices in the Australian building and development industries, through facilitating education and conversation among industry professionals.  As a long-time supporter and board member to the AGDF, John looks forward to leading the organisation push for a greener Australia.

The appointment is the culmination of decades of work on Johns part – who has been pushing for sustainable initiatives within the Australian development industry before and during his time with BE Collective. 

John’s focus on sustainable initiatives led him to become one of the few structural/civil specialists to be accredited as a Green Star Professional, and his work in ESD related projects include Modulo, his flatpack emergency shelter design; the Suan Lum Sustainable Masterplan in Bangkok; and River Community Centre sustainability concepts to name a few. 

To learn more about how BE Collective can drive your sustainable project home (pun intended) get in touch with us here.

Coffee Consumption Rises as Toll on Conscience Plummets

BEC dropped off our first load of used Nespresso recyclable coffee pods this morning! Our Brisbane office has used 325 coffee pods since getting our new machine this Christmas – that’s 325 non-recyclable coffee cups not sent to landfill.

Not all coffee pod machines use recyclable pods, but our Nespresso machine does, and Nespresso has set up their recycling process to be as easy as possible.  The closest coffee pod recycling point from our Fortitude Valley head office is an easy 500m walk down the road at Phoebe Stephen Flowers.
