2023 Circular Leader Award finalist, Belinda Chellingworth

Belinda Chellingworth
Director, BC Consulting Pty Ltd

From her early 1990’s career, Belinda has championed circularity, by actively doing, not just talking. From rescuing Horse Race times TAB paper at her pub job to write Uni notes, to ensuring the BBQ chickens at her deli job were sold and not binned, from teenagehood she chose to value materials. During her early career at Taronga Zoo, she loved delivering the ‘We’re calling on You’ campaign to visitors – linking Mobile Phone recycling with Congo Conflict Minerals and Gorilla Habitat destruction.

She spent 20 years implementing circularity within Local and State Government, NFP’s and businesses, whilst volunteering and travelling to every continent on earth. She has led the circularity portfolios for large and influential organisations, including the London School of Economics, the GPT Group, Australia Post and ALDI AU. Now Director of BC Consulting; a trusted circularity advisor to the property, retail and logistics sectors; she makes circularity broadly accessible, and never boring.

She is currently joining the Circular Australia Infrastructure Working Group and Boomerang Labs mentor program. She contributes expertise by judging reuse and biodiversity for the APCO and Banksia Awards. Belinda still implements her tertiary biodiversity education for a regenerative approach.
