MOSS founder rolls into town

CORPORATE social responsibility industry body, Models of Success and Sustainability, is looking to launch a Western Australian branch to help local organisations deliver environmental and social sustainability solutions. MOSS founder and executive director Anne-Maree Huxley visited Perth this week to garner support among business and community leaders for a state-based division. The newly created industry body is the first of its kind in Australia and is modelled on a similar group based in the UK, which boasts some of the world’s largest companies as members, including BHP Billiton, Coca-Cola and Ford Motor Company. Ms Huxley said MOSS was developed to meet an industry need, and that WA was in a unique position to drive efforts to address social and environmental issues due to its economic prosperity. She said local factors, such as the challenges of achieving a work-life balance, the shortage of labour, and the drought as an indicator of the effects of climate change, were leading more organisations towards CSR. MOSS members are involved in networking, peer-to-peer education programs and major events. A second meeting for potential WA members will be held in Perth next month.
