With the Trump administration having pulled out of the historic Paris Climate Accord, we thought it a good time to re-air our fascinating episode with the woman on the front lines of implementing that accord: Rachel Kyte, CEO of the United Nation’s Sustainable Energy for All Programme.
Kyte articulates the impetus for the Paris Climate Accord in the first place – and how it can be implemented. It’s a fine dance of diplomacy, technology, science, negotiation, creative business and financial modeling, and entrenched positions – with human survival in the balance.
This is much more than “an agreement.”
She also addresses the challenges of developing a clean energy infrastructure with 21st century technology with every country on earth – and as fast as possible, because populations are at grave risk.
You’ll hear about:
- Innovation to increase access to energy – and therefore economic well-being – across the globe.
- The art of developing new business and financial models among parties from different economic structures and values that drive results.
- What’s missing and the “next big thing.”
- Influence management, communication skills, and career advice for innovators (and women)
