We launched the SotG Climate&Sustainability division on May 19th, 2021 as part of our Global Community Dialogue Day.
To date we have come up with the following ways that SotG as a network is uniquely positioned to make an Impact in this space:
- Sustainability Weeks – We are talking with the leadership of sustainability-week.org/ about expanding their network to new universities in countries where we have SotG teams. Because we currently have a lot of other programs based around working with Universities, we see this as a good fit.
- CEO4Climate – CEO4Climate.ch is an initiative in Switzerland that has gather the signatures of over 500 CEOs and Country Managers on a “petition” to the Swiss government to change laws so that companies wanting to be more climate friendly no longer face competitive disadvantages in the market. We’ve begun exploring how we might export this concept to other countries through the SotG network.
- Matchmaking cleantech entrepreneurs – There are a lot of entrepreneurs from different regions of the world working on similar technologies for cleaner energy, carbon removal, etc. To date we have not found any other organization working to help connect them with each other, speeding progress on research and funding. We have a rapidly growing international network and have demonstrated the ability to quickly grow that network upon demand(72 national coordinators across 65 countries in the first 99 days of 2021)
- General entrepreneurial support for cleantech – Likewise, many of these entrepreneurs can benefit from our Impact Network and global system of experts.
