Andrew Runciman



Andrew joined the Board in 2011 and has acted as secretary or treasurer since this time. He has a background in operational and strategic planning and personnel training and management. Andrew has championed the development of AWARE’s board management systems, through his organised and diligent approach. He has a keen interest in developing systems that encourage reduction in consumption and remove the potential for human end-user error and closed cycle recycling systems as ways of reducing environmental impact. His personal environmental dislikes are single use plastic bags and water bottles, non-recyclable packaging, product additives that contaminate the water systems and fragranced products that diminish air quality.

Andrew is a classical homeopath, developing his professional practice in Whistler, a mountain bike instructor and guide and a keen skier.
