Do you know this feeling? Do you also wonder why except through all the urgency that is being shown in the media there are still no results in putting an end to the climate crisis?

We are sick of leaving this problem to the ones whose words sound so sophisticated but their actions show differently...

Therefore, we are searching for the action-takers in this crisis. The ones who act despite the overwhelming forces coming against them!

We are your hosts - Nicolaj Grabert and Maximilian Lehmann and we have decided to go out and interview the change-makers of our time.

    Ronja Wolf & Ulrike Glatz - system problems need system solutions.

    Ronja Wolf working at www.Systemiq.earth Ronja gained deep expertise in our economy and how we can transform into a more sustainable one.

    What KPI's do we following that transformation? Is GDP a KPI which can co-exist next to a world without climate change?



    Ulrike Glatz me interviewing Ronja and helps us with here background in strategy consulting at Accenture and as the founder of the impact Allianz to find answers about new measurements for our economy & global society.



    On the hunt for silver bullets, I came to the understanding that "one solve its all" is not how we can approach our complex system. 

    What we need instead is to constantly evolve and find new ways of approaching global problems like climate change.



    In this episode we talked about:

    - What moves companies and individuals to push change within their industry 

    - The power of individuals bringing change into their companies

    - How to help the government to drive change with good set boundary conditions

    - Why will we act on climate change now since we haven't acted on it since decades

    - Why companies are scared as s**t from not evolving now into sustainable business models

    - How to set up your own Fridays for future at your workplace

    Holger Thorsten Schubart, CEO Neutrino Energy Group - Die Zukunft der Energiegewinnung

    Holger Thorsten Schubart, CEO Neutrino Energy Group - Die Zukunft der Energiegewinnung

    Das Thema der Energiegewinnung ist ein sehr zentrales in der Klimafrage.

    Gerade beim diesjährigen Energiewende-Kongress in Berlin von der dena (Deutsche Energie Agentur) ist uns klar geworden, dass wir 2 Bewegungen Herr werden müssen.

    Auf der einen Seite zwingt uns der Klimawandel zum Handeln schneller auf erneuerbare Energien umzusteigen.

    Doch auf der anderen Seite steigt unser Energieaufwand als Gesellschaft ungemein.

    Die aktuelle Lösung? Mehr von dem gleichen machen.

    Mehr Solar!

    Mehr Windkraft!

    Mehr Wasserkraft!



    Doch ist das alles?

    Ein vehementes „Nein“ kann unser heutiger Gast dieser Frage entgegenbringen.



    Holger Thorsten Schubart ist der CEO der Neutrino Germany GmbH.

    Die Neutrino Energy GmbH arbeitet an einer neuen Art der Energiegewinnung, über Neutrinos..



    Eine gänzlich neue Kategorie.

    Warum diese Art und Weise der Energieerzeugung bereits von DAX 30 Unternehmen in Deutschland evaluiert wird und warum wir zukünftig unsere Elektroautos nicht mehr an der Steckdose aufladen müssen, erfährst du in diesem Podcast.

    Kasha Huk - B-Lab Country Manager - using businesses as a force for good.

    Kasha Huk - B-Lab Country Manager - using businesses as a force for good.

    It is the main role of businesses today to serve the global community or to serve their employees, shareholders and customers?



    Kasha Huk is the Country Manager of Canada at B-Lab. We talked about the mind-shift happening in the business world. The biggest and most capital intensive institutions like Black Rock commit their efforts towards a more sustainable and fair world for humanity and the planet. 



    Kasha is facilitating that emerging within big cooperations, medium-sized businesses and startups in Canada and around the world and gives us deep insights into the standards B-Lab is establishing in the economy.



    In the podcast we are talking about:

    - the match of profitable businesses and social/environmental impact

    - what are the signs that we are witnessing a tipping point of companies that adapt to our global problems

    - the interplay of politics, NGO´s and business

    - how the externalization of costs (e.g pollution) is regulated and how "green" business will give their investors profitable investment possibilities

    - impossible till someone does it - will we that in solving climate change?

    - how to leverage the power of organizations like B-Lab



    My key take away of the podcast is Kashas amazing "we will solve that mess" attitude and the positive energy that is creating.



    Who are your role models that use their business as a force for good?

    Anders Wijkman - Club of Rome honor president - incremental change vs transformation.

    Anders Wijkman - Club of Rome honor president - incremental change vs transformation.

    Anders Wijkman talked with us about the trends and transformations we are currently going through in regards to climate change.



    We dive deep into the following topics:

    Are the coming generations equipped enough to really face the problems we see occurring in our world?

    Service-oriented businesses - what can happen?

    How are opportunities like the circular economy are connected to different ministries and how that is slowing down implementation?

    History tells us transformation only takes place in big crisis.

    How Anders experiences the mindset of our political leaders and what impact it has that most of them are not listening to.

    The issue of competitiveness in regards to climate change.



    The system that needs to be transformed is huge and set up so that implementing "the right things" often is not jet supported by the rules, politics gives those cooperations. Anders spent his lifetime at this interface and helped us to get a better understanding of what is really happening there.



    The takeaway I gained in this podcast is that:

    1.st when there is no business model for your solution, we won't be able to implement it on scale

    2.nd politics can create the environment so that it is easier to find business models for the "right" products.



    What are your role models for future prooven businesses that hit the sweet spot between serving our world & having a great business model?
