Cleanweb May - Climate Change

This month, (if you excuse the terrible pun in the title) we're looking at where the world of finance and cleanweb intersect.

What happens to your pensions when their value is tied to companies who base their stock price on unburnable carbon?

What kinds of environmental data is being used to change how people invest in companies?

How is the web being used to speed up the rollout of renewables and help people save at the the same time?

We'll be looking into this, and admiring London's skyline in the ultra swanky offices of Climate Change Capital, next to City Hall by London Bridge.

    One of the best meetups I've been to driven by the high quality of the presentations - particularly from Duncan and Trillion Fund.

    I'm sorry that I was not able to make this, after all. Did anyone live blog, or video.
    If anyone is interested in our job postings, they can contact me via the link I posted, yesterday.

    Ola!

    I'm a partner for a solar energy tech company that is building power plants delivering both heat and power from a single source, using CSP heliostat tech with CPV cells.

    Would be good to meet other people in the industry!

    Hello! This will be my first Cleanweb meeting. I've had a long interest in sustainability, and have created products to support windpower development and efficiency. I'm CTO of Sponsorcraft (sponsorcraft.com), a crowdfunding platform for students that helps to develop entrepreneurial skills. Some of our users tackle social and sustainability issues & we want to support more of this. We are looking for front and backend interns and developers with JS/JQuery and Python/Django skills respectively. More here:

    Hi all -
    I look forward to meeting you all tomorrow. This will be my first time to a Cleanweb meetup.

    By way of introduction, I'm a former strategy consultant who focused on sustainability. I co-authored a report called Resource Revolution on the world's sustainability priorities over the next 20 years. I have presented at multiple universities on the topic and would be happy to discuss it with anyone further if you are interested. A link for the report can be found here: http://bit.ly/13COuge

    I recently left McKinsey to start my own technology company focused on helping to reduce food waste. We are looking to hire a lead developer. You can find a link for the job posting here: http://bit.ly/Z3AzjA
