Tell us a little bit about you and your background:
I have been investing in and involved with sustainable projects and businesses globally since the 1980s, with a focus in the last 20+ years on implementing technology, expertise and solutions, and financing in Developing Economies.
What is a fun fact about you?
Circumnavigated the world twice in 2020, not by choice!
Why do you think climate change and sustainability is such an important topic today?
By 2030, life as we know it will be radically altered by climate change. How we live, how many of us get to live, and the quality of life then, depend on the actions we do and do not take today.
What do you envision your industry looking like 10 years from now?
Under the control of a vastly expanded state-corporate apparatus, which rations out the remaining resources to a mass population suffering continuously declining quality of life and restriction on freedoms.
What can the average person do to make a difference?
Consume less, consume sustainably, and with the money they save, invest in and fund those businesses and projects which are seeking to slow down the destruction of the planet.
