Perth NRM, CEO
Keith is CEO at Perth NRM, a for-purpose organisation in the Natural Resource Management (NRM) sector. Perth NRM collaborates with government, industry stakeholders and community to empower people to have a positive ecological impact.
Keith was instrumental in establishing RegenWA, a network of West Australian farmers who are identifying and sharing leading regenerative practices.
This has since been supported with Perth NRM’s natural capital accounting program, which is establishing methods and standards to verify if a farming practice or system is beneficial for both the farming enterprise and the broader landscape.
Most recently, Keith is championing the most important piece of the puzzle – establishing a collective impact approach for ecosystem restoration, that can be extended to all purpose-driven enterprises involving social benefit and/or behaviour change.
Perth NRM is now recognised as a leading organisation and catalyst for sustainable agriculture, natural capital accounting and impact management.
