Jonathan Dutton joins ACCSROctober 2013
Corporate social responsibility advisory and training firm, the Australian Centre for Corporate Social Responsibility (ACCSR), has appointed Jonathan Dutton as a non-executive director. He joined the firm in early September in a part-time capacity.
Dutton is the former head of the global peak body for procurement in the Australasian region, The Chartered Institute of Purchasing & Supply (CIPSA), which he led for over eight years as the founding managing director in Australasia from 2004 until earlier this year.
The managing director and founder of Melbourne-based ACCSR, Dr Leeora Black, commented: “Procurement and supply side questions have become much more prominent in responsible business practises in our region in the last few years. For example, the new G4 Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guidelines were introduced in May, and for the first time place a major emphasis on organisations reporting on their sustainability approach to the supply chain. This is the area that Jonathan will be able to help us and our clients the most.”
Specifically, Dutton will also be speaking on behalf of ACCSR at events, contributing to the ACCSR training programs, blogging monthly on CSR in supply chain issues and advising the ACCSR team and clients on supply side issues.
In addition to his eight years leading CIPSA, Dutton has worked in both procurement and sales for British Airways & Qantas and been marketing director of two public companies – Chubb and Regus. He has a degree in economics, is a fully qualified procurement professional, has the AICD diploma in corporate governance, and is a fellow of four institutes including the Royal Society of Arts, Manufacturing & Commerce [RSA].
