Jason LaChappelle

Jason was formerly ISEAL's Senior Communications Coordinator and is a Freelance Consultant now

Jason joined ISEAL in 2011 and worked to improve the quality and quantity of ISEAL’s online content and external publications. As editor of the email newsletters, he coordinated the delivery of compelling articles and valuable information relating to the work of ISEAL and its members, as well as the broader sustainability standards movement. Jason also explored opportunities for ISEAL to communicate its work more effectively and to promote the value of sustainability standards to a larger audience. In both external and internal communications, he was responsible for ensuring that ISEAL’s work is conveyed in a clear and accessible way.  Jason departed from ISEAL in early 2015.

Jason graduated with a Master of Arts in Global Governance from the University of Waterloo (Canada), specialising in environmental politics. During this time he worked for the Centre for International Governance Innovation on the institute’s African Initiative. He has a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Alberta, where he focused on international development. For many years Jason worked with organisations supporting people with intellectual disabilities, and this remains an area of personal interest.
