Executive Director, Global Citizens Imperative
Challenge: How Can Individuals and Corporations Manage and Reduce their Carbon Contributions?
Solution: Green Gas – Fueling Environmental Impact
The Global Citizens Imperative is working with gas stations and others to “replace the middle button” and offer consumers gasoline that includes the price of the carbon emissions. This grassroots approach to carbon pricing creates environmental and humanitarian impact through a market-based strategy.
