2015 A Year Of Transition


With tens of thousands of people filling the streets of Paris to celebrate an agreement that will end the fossil fuel era and turbo-charge the clean energy revolution, it’s time to ‘turn it up’!   An amazing tipping point and awareness that the evolution of embracing greater and smarter technologies is being set further into our consciousness. 

We congratulate all those who have participated in making this event a new history.

Here at Ecospecifier Global, we too have been going through a transition and in 2015 we saw the expansion of the Ecospecifier Global marketing services being offered to manufacturers, providing for them a menu of different ways to reach greater audiences. In 2015, we also expanded services to professional subscribers to embrace the new ‘Building Empowerment’ Materials Intelligence online course.  Thank-you for taking this journey with us!  Both services are still developing and in 2016… 

... you will see greater expansion in Ecospecifier Global Education for Building Professionals as we  expand to New Zealand and South Africa and also into the Consumer Education Sector with seminars and product packages.  Ecospecifier Global Marketing will continue with supporting manufacturers as well as expanding to other closely related green enterprises. There are also some other new projects emerging… but while spoil the surprise!!!

2016 will be a great year for us all to raise our standard of living on planet earth for ourselves and future generations. It’s one of the better legacies we have to offer.

Wishing you all a Relaxing, Happy and Joyous Christmas from The Team at Ecospecifier Global. 

Mary-Lou Kelly CEO
