“Fundamental changes to energy usage are at the core of facing the climate change crisis. Everything depends on energy. The corporate world needs to adapt how they think of energy use and create strategies for sustainable energy usage. I am motivated by helping companies achieving the goals in these strategies. No one can do everything, but everyone can do something. By working in Ecohz I do something.”
