The Real Media Collective (TRMC) is preparing for its end of year Annual General Meeting (AGM) on December 2, which will include an executive exchange on COP26 commitments across carbon net zero emissions and deforestation targets to lead next year’s agenda.
TRMC, together with Australasian Paper Industry Association (APIA) board officers, Responsible Wood / PEFC, HP and Currie Group executives will come together prior to the TRMC AGM evening event to share strategies and solutions via this executive exchange session focussing on COP26, energy sources and other environmental commitments across manufacturing for the region.
“Our industry carries a strong environmental record with our well-established reforestation initiatives, and many of our members are already exploring, and/or implementing, green energy solutions,” TRMC CEO Kellie Northwood said.
“Bringing our board and senior leaders across the paper mills and merchants from APIA, supported by our new partnership with Responsible Wood and PEFC, as well as innovation leaders from HP and Currie Group, to discuss, at an executive level, ideas and solutions we can bring to our members and broader industry is a powerful opportunity to start an important conversation.”
TRMC has long been running the Two Sides campaign promoting the environmental credentials for paper and print; recently reporting the exploration of carbon mapping calculators for industry, green energy discussion papers and alignment to government GHG guidelines for commercial print members.
“As an industry we will be looking for a common standard, where we can. Energy is a high-cost input to our operations, and we must be on the front foot to these government discussions to ensure our industry is working on solutions for a sustainable and strong future,” Northwood said.
TRMC’s annual AGM event will be held at The Establishment in Sydney on 2 December. All members are welcomed to this first physical gathering it is hosting in over two years.
“I am personally thrilled to be able to see our members again, all in one room, celebrating our industry achievements and our opportunities for the year ahead. I cannot thank Mike, Rob, Craig and the teams at HP and Currie Group enough for the support in bringing not only the executive exchange session to life, but also the evening event – in these times all event logistics are difficult to navigate, well done to all involved,” Northwood said.
All attendees must register to comply with venue COVID compliance.
