Covering everything from the need for businesses to change their models or face extinction, the difficulties for incumbent energy leaders and recent progress around climate change, Rick Wheatley’s recent interview with social entrepreneur Jeremy Leggett reveals some prescient thinking and highly relevant points of view.
Jeremy is founder and chairman of Solarcentury, the UK’s largest solar solutions company, and SolarAid, a charity set up with Solarcentury profits. Solarcentury has won multiple awards for innovation and sustainability, including the 2006 Sunday Times / Microsoft TechTrack 100 R&D Award and the FT / Treasury Inner City 100 Greenest Company Award; and Jeremy has been described by the Observer as ‘the UK’s most respected green energy boss.’
Jeremy will be a keynote speaker at the GLTE Global Projects Exchange on 12-13 November 2014, where the theme is the innovation imperative. Contact Louisa Gartside for more information about the event.
