The Company

For 30 years in New Zealand and 40 years in Australia Geofabrics have supported the infrastructure sector on significant projects from the Victorian Level Crossing Removal projects to APLNG in Queensland, to the Christchurch Gondola in New Zealand. On these projects, and every project Geofabrics undertake, they have a singular focus: to provide smarter infrastructure solutions for their clients. In fact, they were ranked #1 in the Manufacturing & Consumer Goods category on the Most Innovative Companies list by the Australian Financial Review (AFR) and BOSS Magazine.

For Geofabrics, smarter infrastructure is about using smart products, smart solutions and smart people to help their clients develop value... engineering opportunities for their projects. They believe this delivers greater opportunities to lower risk, cost and construction time frames whilst increasing maintenance cycles and whole of life opportunities.

The Role

Geofabrics has extensive experience in the application of geosynthetics into traditional civil markets, including Mining, and is now deepening its extensive product range, R&D capability and progression to solving complex environmental problems through Australian made geosynthetics into Mine Rehabilitation, land remediation and revegetation applications.

The Environmental Solutions Manager will complement the existing strengths of Geofabrics in the application of geosynthetics into these segments through a strong background in environmental consultancy, environmental planning, contaminated site assessments (mining, industry, urban developments) and assisting mine sites achieve compliance in rehabilitation and decarbonisation.

Key responsibilities include:
• Leading and managing all elements of environment, planning and sustainability for a program of projects.
• Providing expert ESG advice in a dynamic project delivery environment.
• Working with Geofabrics’ partners (employees, customers, consultants, contractors) to ensure superior environmental and sustainability outcomes.
• Discover and pursue new business opportunities nationally for the Mining, Water, Waste & Containment segments.
• Maximise revenue by working closely with Segment Business Development Managers, the Geosynthetics Research, Innovation & Development team and state sales teams by promoting the sustainability proposition of our green range of geosynthetics and more broadly, the benefits of geosynthetics as a solution relative to conventional materials and / or construction methods.
• Present the Geofabrics business as a leader and solutions provider in de-carbonisation of mine assets through the promotion and use of geosynthetics.
• Connect the Geofabrics business and specifically, BDMs and GRID, to environmental industry specialists in Mining, Land Remediation (including Defence) and Waste & Containment.
• Working with the Geofabrics Group CEO/MD and Marketing, promote the company positioning and capability in strengthening its carbon footprint including, inter alia, development of EPD’s, product Life Cycle Analysis and the de-carbonising of our manufacturing plants.
• Geofabrics advocacy with Industry Associations such as Austmine, ISC and Greening Australia to promote our business and our green, sustainability and environmental credentials.
