We would like to thank Robin Branson, one of AIEN’s founding members, who decided to stand down on 30 June 2020 from his position on the AIEN Board.

Robin was considered a pioneer of Industrial Ecology in the world and was a strong advocate of progressing sustainable development through the study and practice of IE.

We thank him for his tenacity, insight and deep knowledge which he shared readily with the AIEN network and its members to further progress the discussion of IE in Australia.

Robin said that helping to establish AIEN, and his tenure on the Board, were enormously rewarding.

“I hope that all those who join the Board in the future, preserve the essence of the company, maintain its character and have as much fun as I have had,” he added.
