On October 16 2018, the ResponsibleSteel™ Inaugural Leadership Award was awarded to Mr Ross Davies (pictured above) in recognition of his prescience, leadership, and generosity of spirit in the creation and establishment of ResponsibleSteel.
Ross started out studying Volcanology (reflecting his Kiwi younger days) and then transitioning into sales of products ranging from MSG to steel, before moving into sustainability in the built environment ten years ago. Ross has always been an advocate for change, and and led the development of the Steel Stewardship Forum, the forerunner for ResponsibleSteel.
“The position was that we want to move the bulk of the market along this route,” Mr Davies said, “and that is, in some respects, a bigger challenge but makes it easier to determine what we do moving forward.”
Thank you Ross for your leadership, collaboration and support.
