Zero Carbon Industry Through Transformative Technologies and Policies with Jeffrey Rissman People With Purpose

    • Self-Improvement

Today, David is joined by Jeffrey Rissman who is the Senior Director of Industry at Energy Innovation, an independent climate policy think tank. Jeff´s work has been featured in Fast Company and New Scientist. He helps the industry to navigate its way to a net zero economy.
Jeff shares examples of how companies are transitioning to clean power and production methods. As well as explaining how the right policies and s are speeding up the process.
KEY TAKEAWAYS
The technology we need to transition to a clean economy exists and, in most cases, also makes economic sense. New legislation is speeding up the rate at which companies adopt clean production methods. Industrial heat pumps easily generate enough heat to carry out about a third of industrial processes e.g. cooking and packaging food. To be kind to the environment, it's important to find the most efficient and direct way to get the energy we need. A transition to a sustainable economy isn't a conservative or a liberal issue. No one benefits when pollutants are being belched into the air. Changing the way things are made has the potential to turn concrete into a product that helps to repair our climate. It makes economic sense for industrialising nations to leapfrog into green technology. Net zero sooner is better for people and the economy. BEST MOMENTS
‘Industrial facilities should be looking at energy efficiency, material efficiency, and electrification of heat.’
‘It isn't a choice between sustainability and economic benefits, you can have both.’
‘It´s not a smart investment to invest in dirty technology... leapfrogging can avoid unnecessary investment.’

ABOUT THE SHOW
People with purpose make a difference. Imagine a world where more people can just get their purpose out of them, into a plan and then actually make it happen. What a world that would be - People everywhere finding meaning and harnessing that to bring inspiration and energy to each and every day, changing lives for the better. But no one ever achieved anything on their own - we all have something unique to bring and that means we all have to play our part - if we want to go far, we have to go together and lead or serve towards a vision of the world we want to see. Everyone has a story to tell, and this show is where these stories come to life.

ABOUT THE GUEST
Senior Director of Industry at Energy Innovation JEFFREY RISSMAN, who focuses on technologies and politics to combat rising greenhouse gas emissions in the industrial sector. His new book ZERO-CARBON INDUSTRY: Transformative Technologies and Policies to Achieve Sustainable Prosperity [Columbia University Press] goes on sale on February 27, 2024.
In Zero-Carbon Industry, Jeffrey unpacks the complex challenges presented by climate change and offers clear, actionable insights on how we can revamp the industrial world’s heaviest emitters using cutting-edge technologies and intelligent policy. His book offers a roadmap on the transformative journey through smart investments in technology, people, and the planet toward a carbon-neutral industrial sector, which is projected to become America’s biggest source of emissions by 2035.
