Welcome to MOSS

Models of Success and Sustainability (MOSS) is an Australian based NFP industry body for individuals, corporations, governments and not-for-profit organisations interested in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Sustainability, founded in 2005 by  Anne-Maree McInerney (formerly Huxley). It fosters innovation and responsible business practices globally through education, training, networking, tools and advice - driving sustainability, zero waste, innovation and competitive business success.

More recently we've also partnered with an array of investment groups to support sustainability innovation, business growth, the roll out of clean technology and the development of much needed infrastructure.  So what are your needs?

The World Economic Forum suggests 80% of the US$3.2 trillion global consumer good sector is lost irrecoverably each year due to the current inefficient 'make, take, waste' model.  How much is that worth to your business, community or economy?

If we are to successfully achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, limit the impacts of climate change, provide water, housing, food and energy security to a global population in excess of 7.2 billion that is forecast to be 9.6 billioin by 2050, then we need to consider the impact of the decisions we make today.

Our goal is to inspire visionary change in society, by providing the know how and tools to transition our world to a more regenerative, inclusive, zero waste economy.  If you would like to lead your business and or community and learn how to embrace sustainability as a core component of strategy, operations and supply chain, then MOSS is here to help you innovate and prosper! Learn more...

MOSS supports the Blue Economy

When most people think about the environment or sustainability they think green - but for many it's considered too expensive and because of what is often a linear approach, green has proven to have many unintended negative consequences.

 A new business model that focuses on systems integration, inspired by nature with zero waste that underpins a more sustainable approach to economic development has emerged.  It's called the  The Blue Economy and its shaping a new way to do business.

The Blue Economy is creating jobs (millions of them), solving problems, 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 multiple benefits including building capital in all it's forms. Through a systemic approach, standing on the shoulders of the Green Economy, the Blue Economy provides us the principles, methodologies, business models and technologies to deliver win:win solutions to a changing economic landscape in which resource depletion and social costs are untenable and unsustainable.

Its 100+ game changing innovations as presented to the Club of Rome, are set to generate 100 million new jobs in the next 10 years. These mostly disruptive and outcompeting models draw on the decennial works and the latest bodies of knowledge, research, experiments, and successful businesses of pioneering entrepreneurs, scientists and economists worldwide.


Whether you are an entrepreneur, manufacturer, miner, farmer, government, NGO, business advisor, sustainability consultant, small business or a multinational company - you need to know about the The Blue Economy to enable you to achieve your business goals in a way that reduces costs, builds resilience and generates value, whilst building capital in all it's forms.
