We were invited by Forbes to discuss our views on sustainability, specifically on water and energy. We typically use such platforms to encourage further investment and innovation in these areas, but also,
to drive positive consumer action.
Our views, inputs and observations.
1. Don't view water as 'free'. Fresh water is a very expensive commodity. We simply choose not to price it.
2. Laziness is costly. 80% of all wastewater is pumped into fresh water sources. Why can't we extract value from it instead?
3. The future is green.As one of the earliest active participants in the renewables space, as operators, investors and board members, it has been good to see the acceptance of the current climate future, and what it may look like if we choose to do nothing.
