I’m pleased to feature Jim Harris’ Ideacity talk during which he shares facts about sustainability that may come as a surprise. He points out that being green can be quite profitable and is good for both the bottom line and the environment. If you like TED talks on-line, you will like Canada’s version at Ideacity.
Here are some interesting points made during his talk:
- In one hour, more energy falls on the earth from the sun than the total amount of energy consumed globally in an entire year
- Companies like Walmart and Dell are finding ‘simple solutions’ to conserve and save energy adding hundreds of millions to their bottom line
- Henry Ford’s first cars were getting 25 mpg and, in spite of a thousand fold increase in technological progress, the average SUV today gets less than 20 mpg
