Frances Edmonds

As a seasoned executive I work to drive meaningful change across Canada to support a more circular and sustainable economy. Recognizing the power of procurement in enabling us to “Purchase the future we want” I seek and drive collective work to advance the practice in Canada. Working collaboratively with many stakeholders, I recently completed work on the CCA Expert Panel on the Circular Economy for Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC). The report “Turning point” examines the opportunities for Canada in the Circular Economy. I also sit on Minister Guilbeault’s ECCC advisory panel on the Sustainable Development Act strategy.
I manage HP’s industry leading Social Impact program and as part of my passion for sustainability education I sit on the board of Learning for a Sustainable Future as well as mentoring many young and mature students and sustainability professionals alike.
I am recognized as one of Canada’s top sustainability professionals having received two Clean 50 awards and have led HP to became the most sustainable technology company in Canada. www.hp.ca/sustainableimpact.
As seen on stages including TEDx, I am both a guest lecturer and speaker on a wide range of topics including the circular economy.As a seasoned executive I work to drive meaningful change across Canada to support a more circular and sustainable economy.
