I’m Alex Setmajer, a sustainability professional based in Portland, Oregon.
My mission in life is to do work that has a direct connection to increasing the sustainability and transparency of supply chain and sourcing practices, as well as increasing product and material health and transparency. I have over three years of experience in sustainable business practices/CSR, sustainable rating systems and certifications, research, communications and employee engagement. I’ve trained hundreds of people on sustainability rating systems and how to bring sustainability into their personal life and career through presentations and guest lectures at events on the local, regional, national and international level.
I gained my Bachelors of Architectural Design with a focus in passive sustainable design from Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. I’m currently working on my second Bachelors focused on environmental sustainability at Portland State University in Portland, Oregon.
When I’m not searching for the healthiest, most sustainable lifestyle (that is also affordable), I love to adventure around the beautiful Pacific Northwest with friends and my precious pup, Dori, as well as experience more of the world through books and travel.
