I realized recently that, like the climate crisis itself, the idea of a "climate company" might be overwhelming some entrepreneurs. I have good news: we need everything.
Yey! You mentioned accounting as a potential climate company, alas it’s the boring piece of the puzzle but something we’ve been looking at for about a decade. Lot’s of companies have lofty carbon reduction goals but only a small percentage who actually know how much it will cost to transition to a greener business model. We want to explicitly link cost and carbon in the one model. When we started 10 years ago no one cared, that seems to be changing now. So we are reinvigorating our Environmental Sustainability Interest Group at CAM-I, which is a 40+ year old Not For Profit think tank. Combining that work with the e-liability institute’s model of measuring carbon at source,Scope 1 and allocate to products/services (using CAM-I model) and distribute to customers via blockchain as their Scope 3.
Is that jollof rice!?
Scooperleash _USA LLC is a climate company with niche in urban pet waste control and aggregation away from drinking water streams
The big question is what counts as a climate startup. It's like 10 years ago when farming, food service, exercise became technology startups.
Get out of my brain, Molly! I was JUST thinking, following that dire report, “What can I do? What kind of business could I start to help the planet?” And my second thought: “Where’s Molly on all this?” And here you are! :)
read a bunch of the slow horses books before the series dropped on apple+. i refuse to pay for yet another streaming service. i've now read them all and loved them. i know the author likes what they've done with the books, BUT the Lamb character is unbelievably, deliciously vile in the books - to a degree that i can't imagine they could get away with on tv, even on streaming. check 'em out.
If you don’t mind a bit more grimdark violence, the further Abercrombie novels like Best Served Cold are excellent, and Red Country is surprisingly on point for some contemporary topics.
