Peter Simons, Managing Director of DB Breweries, has been appointed to the Sustainable Business Council (SBC) Advisory Board following voting from Council members in July and August.

Comprised of senior executives who have demonstrated sustainability leadership, Simons is joined by Alice Andrew from 4Sight, Marc England from Genesis, Wayne McNee from Livestock Improvement Corporation, and Carol Ward from Zespri.

“Businesses in New Zealand need to acknowledge the climate challenges we face, and tackle these head on while ensuring the country thrives as we transition to a low-emissions economy,” says Simons.

“The Sustainable Business Council will be at the centre of this and I’m proud to be nominated to its Advisory Board.”

“Having spent my career working around the world with Heineken, I’m looking forward to bringing international experience, connections, and business acumen to the table,” he says.

“These skills will be important as we look outwards to collaborate, draw inspiration, and make progress.”

The role of the SBC Advisory Board is to lead the SBC into their next phase, determine strategy, programmes, and lead change. Read more about it here.
