Innovation and Sustainability

About This Collection

Generally innovation in the context of sustainability focuses on the conversations around the role of innovation by business leaders who advocate the development of sound business models to encourage investment in new products and services. Many products, but not all, are focused on renewable energy, another EarthSayers.tv Special Collection.

This collection addresses other emerging markets in diverse industries ranging from agriculture to information technology to biotechnology as well as beauty and wellness. Sustainability calls on us to consider innovation more broadly to include not just the technical, but the social and environmental as well.  Innovation may be found in conversations around ethical sourcing, social innovation, and in the role of the social entrepreneur.

He discusses opportunities to invest in technology solutions with solid businss plans and with support from politicians in terms of time horizons and even a carbon tax. All part of the need to combat climate change. Briefly discusses need for support of their natural product designed to replace the rubber coming out of rain forests and from fossil fuel. Not sure it can be cost-competitive, a tax on carbon would make it easier.
