“I think what's really interesting and intriguing to me is the collaboration from the DOT and the DOE. there certainly is an overlap when you think about electrification, it's a transportation question, but it's also an energy question and both of those things have to be really coordinated to have success here…. They have to be developed in tandem and coordinated is something that really hasn't been, on their radar ...

“To me an exciting industry, the auto industry, so I wondered ‘why aren’t more women, particularly young women interested in the automotive industry?’…So this is why I conducted a quantitative-qualitative correlational study looking at relationships between all these things the experts say you should do…. I wanted to know, ‘is that really true?’ … And if it IS accurate, then why don’t we have more women at least in middle managemen...

“I think the biggest issue is there are no quote unquote ‘incentives’ at the national level to require companies of any size, whether they're private or public to do this hard work, right. And corporate sustainability really is hard work, especially when you're talking about reducing carbon emissions within their supply chains……. (Europe has mandatory ESG reporting, but not the U.S.)  So, it's only those companies that ...

We need “a whole economy transition,” the announcement at COP26 of the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero stated, where “every company, bank, insurer and investor will have to adjust their business models, develop credible plans for the transition and implement them.” Gillian Tett of the Financial Times said on my Electric Ladies podcast at COP26 that, “what they've done is say we've got 450 institutions from around th...

“If you're solving a problem in the world, if your business addresses climate change, for example, guess what?...So, anyone who's passionate about climate change would be a great potential investor for you. So (investors) are really all over the place. Mostly, it just takes a mindset shift.”

Because 40% “of greenhouse gas emissions come from the built environment,…one has to take an integrated look at the built environment to look at how people live, work, and play. But also integration in the sense of understanding how transportation systems fit into that, how urban design affects the efficiency of how people live, how communications networks play, and then ultimately supply chains because people need things.”

“For the entire development of modern civilization, Greenland and Antarctica have been holding vast amounts of water as frozen ice and helping us to maintain very steady sea levels around our coast. And that's allowed us to build infrastructure, build mega cities, right on the coast where many of our world's mega cities sit. Now….we're raising our air temperatures …and that's adding more water to our oceans, which i...

”Think about food design as a system. We are innovating at the product end, but we’re also trying to innovate ….to get food that would be otherwise be wasted back into the food supply chain…(including through) canned (and frozen) fruit and vegetables, which are really good accessible nutrition,” especially in the face of climate change.

“We struggle to keep the plastics that we have in the economy and reuse them...because we are in a linear economy where all the way upstream, there are lots of subsidies on a national and international level to subsidize the extraction of oil and gas, which are the base materials…to produce the plastics….We also have the wrong economic incentives in place…. all the way downstream to not necessarily do the right thing for the enviro...

“What I think is really interesting is how do we get PPPs out there, public private partnerships, where we bring in also the investment community from the beginning, so that we can truly shift the capital where it needs to go in order to reduce our impact.” That’s from Sandrine Dixson, Co-President of the Club of Rome.” Sandrine Dixson on Electric Ladies Podcast

“The GFANZ is potentially very interesting, because what they've done is say, we've got 450 institutions from around the world that have 130 trillion (dollars) worth of assets, all of whom are going to commit to try and decarbonize the world's economy and to get supposedly to net zero by 2050.” Gillian Tett on Electric Ladies Podcast

“We felt like we needed a solution, and that solution had to be a public-private connection.

“Energy storage kind of cuts across multiple sectors…vehicles, that’s a big one…and quite frankly, to move ahead with a lot of the smart cities initiatives, we have to look at centralizing storage in order to maintain the current grid, because the grid can’t handle increased load…So storage really runs the gambit in touching our lives in many, many different ways.”

“We did see that the industry accelerated its energy transition and many of the companies, during the height of the pandemic, were announcing their zero goals… and announced production cuts going forward over the next decade through automation and looking for opportunities to do this, and the pandemic was certainly an accelerator.” Katie Pavolvsky, Deloitte Energy on Electric Ladies Podcast

“Companies are really recognizing that this concept of greenwashing, and these bold ambitious assertions that they can’t back up, that’s no longer, that’s not transparency. That is risk, and that exposing an organization to very concrete reputational and other risks….I think it’s all about transparency driving trust, but it has to be credible, it has to be authentic and it has to be meaningful.”
