Models of Success and Sustainability (MOSS) is an Australian based Not-for-Profit industry body for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Sustainability.
Seeded as an initiative of Australia's Inaugural Corporate Social Responsibility Summit in 2005, MOSS was founded by Anne-Maree McInerney (formerly Huxley) in consultation with key Australian stakeholders to foster responsible business and aid the professional development of CSR and sustainability professionals, business leaders, change agents and innovators.
In more recent years our focus has shifted from traditional green businesses and industries to that of the Blue and Circular Economy which is creating jobs (millions of them), solving problems and teaching us to be more entrepreneurial and collaborative working with what we have, opening the door to innovation led by physics, inspired by nature - building on the green economy - but doing it in a systemic way with new business models and innovation, where there is zero waste, multiple new revenue streams and a plethora of economic, social and environmental benefits.
Whether you are a manufacturer, miner, farmer, government, utility provider, small business or a multinational company - these frameworks and methodologies, along with access to capital and the financial markets (thanks to new partnerships we have created), can help you achieve your goals in a way that reduces costs, builds resilience and creates global value chains.
INNOVATION + EDUCATION + INVESTMENT are the foundation stones required for a more sustainable world.
Wether you want business efficiency, renewable energy and cheaper energy prices, better communication or a more engaged workforce - MOSS is here to support your innovation, education, training and investment needs - putting philosophy, innovation and best practice principals into action.
Not many organisations can boast the fact that their name even as an acronym has a meaning. Our philosophy is based on no ecology no economy - no planet, no profits. Like our biosphere - if there is no moss or lichen we don't have a healthy environment.
It's also true of our society - if we don't have model organisations focusing on the triple or quadruple bottom line with tools, models and frameworks of how to achieve this - we would not have healthy thriving businesses and communities.
Since inception, MOSS has developed and delivered over 100 bespoke training programs, spoken at some 200+ events around the world to more than 30,000 representatives of business, government and community organisations. Our work has ultimately touched many lives - made a difference to thousands of individuals, and added significantly to the economic, social and environmental wellbeing of many organisations and the communities in which they operate. We've also help seed many new initiatives and businesses such as the Carbon Trade Exchange that provided the word's first end to end electronic process for carbon offsets, giving liquidity and transparency to the carbon markets. Today through it's parent company Global Environmental Markets, builds and operates spot exchange markets in Environmental Commodities, Energy Certificates and Financial Securities.

But there is much more we can and need to do, if we are to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals with peace, equality and prosperity for all, living in harmony with nature and the environment - so together as a society we can thrive and prosper. And it all begins with a vision for the future.
