Our Story

At the beginning of our current technologically connected time period Moss Environmental was created as a For Purpose business to provide best-in-class environmental services to all of regional, rural and remote Australia. We identified the need for a highly connected yet fluid company, able to adapt for a large geographical reach using technology, connections, and the breadth of knowledge of our team members.

Our CEO, Shonelle Gleeson-Willey is always looking for new ways to promote the regions and grow a happy, fun and vibrant team of bright minds along the way. This is why we are partners with the University of New England and focus heavily on staff development and training.

Our people are our business, so we provide many opportunities for professional growth, flexibility, fun and learning in our work week. We have a strong culture of staff mentoring and support across all levels, which is key to our success.

As a For Purpose business, we enjoy giving back and sharing our knowledge with the world. Environmental science is our passion, that we live daily, which is why we have launched a Podcast (Beyond the Green Line) to talk to some of our most interesting colleagues and connections.

Our Vision of Moss Environmental is a vibrant, adaptive company that instils the values of quality, communication, adventure, and connection in all our stakeholders. We thrive on a challenge and want to create lasting connections.
