He set out to prove that a for-profit business could create meaningful change through ethical business practices rooted in respect for the earth, the farmer, our co-workers and the consumer.Dean spent over a decade as an indigenous rights and environmental lawyer before bringing those skills to the coffee industry by co-founding Coffee Kids, the coffee industry's first non-profit development organization, in 1988. Yet after designing and managing the development arm of Coffee Kids for five years, Dean decided that charity wasn't enough – until businesses changed their fundamental operating principles there would be no meaningful impact on the lives of the farmers. He founded Dean's Beans Organic Coffee in 1993 with the mission of using specialty coffee as a vehicle for positive social, economic and ecological change at origin.Dean has been a Woods Hole Research Fellow, a Senior Fulbright Scholar, and a Yale Law School Visiting Fellow.Dean's book about social justice, culture and coffee, “Javatrekker: Dispatches from the World of Fair Trade Coffee” was awarded the Gold Medal as Best Travel Essay book of 2008 by the Independent Publishers Association, and has been published in English, Korean and Chinese.The mission of Dean's Beans is to use high quality specialty coffee as a vehicle for progressive change throughout the coffeelands of Asia, Africa and the Americas. This is achieved through: Innovative direct People-Centered Development programs with our Cooperative Partners Activism and Ecological Responsibility The company has been directly engaged in community development and activism for over twenty-five years now.All of the high-quality specialty coffees are certified Organic, Fair Trade, and Kosher, and are roasted fresh to order in small batches at the companies beanery in Orange, MA. The vast use of pesticides in coffee production has serious impact on the ecology of the coffee-growing world and the health of farm communities.Dean has committed his business career to only purchasing shade grown coffees that support healthy environments for coffee growers and protects critical migratory bird habitat. It is important to the company that the quality of coffee includes respect for the quality of life of our southern partners in the coffee world.Listen to more Causeartist podcasts here.Powered by: ReFi Jobs - ReFi jobs curates the best new regenerative finance jobs at leading companies and startups - Learn more---> Check out the Causeartist Partners here.---> Subscribe to the Causeartist Newsletter here.Listen to more Causeartist podcast shows hereFollow Grant on Twitter and LinkedInFollow Causeartist on Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram

As nations scramble to wean off of Russian energy, the U.S. has committed to supporting its European allies in their quest for energy security. At the same time, American consumers are confronting the highest rate of inflation in 40 years, paying more at the pump and for their utility bills than ever before.These trends have led to an increase in U.S. oil and gas production — and calls for even greater market expansion. But this shift could have serious implications for the clean energy transition. On this episode of Political Climate, we wrestle with how to walk the fine line between meeting today's immediate energy demands, maintaining lower prices for American consumers and achieving our climate goals.This is the first episode in a monthly podcast series we're calling “The Arsenal of Clean Energy: Strengthening the Bonds of Clean Energy, Innovation, and Sovereignty.”“Arsenal of Clean Energy” is made possible by Third Way, a center-left think tank championing modern solutions to the most challenging problems in US policy, including the economy, national security and climate change.

In dieser Folge des Digital Insurance Podcast spreche ich mit Kristin Häußermann, Head of Sales Insurance und Manuel Holzhauer, Insurance Industry Executive von Microsoft. Die Microsoft Corporation ist ein globaler Software- und Hardwarehersteller aus den USA. Mit einem Umsatz von rund 168 Milliarden US-Dollar (2021) und über 180.000 Mitarbeitern ist Microsoft das größte Unternehmen in seiner Sparte - und eines der größten überhaupt. Microsoft nimmt inzwischen Themen, wie das Nutzen von Abwärme als Energieressource, ins Reporting hinein. Bis 2030 möchte man u. a. “Carbon negative” werden, erklärt mir Kristin. Das bedeutet, es soll weniger CO² ausgestoßen, als erneuert werden. Mit der Erfahrung als Großkonzern hat Microsoft seine Cloud for Sustainability aufgestellt. Diese ist frei zugänglich und kann von Unternehmen benutzt werden, um sich nachhaltiger aufzustellen. Nicht nur der reine Idealismus eines Betriebs ist entscheidend dafür, wie viel Fokus auf nachhaltige Prozesse gelegt wird. Am Ende entscheide sowieso der Kunde mit seinem Kaufverhalten, erklärt Manuel. Wichtig sei außerdem, den größtmöglichen Hebel zu verwenden. Zuerst die Instrumente einsetzen, die in einer Organisation bei geringem Einsatz maximalen Effekt versprechen. Wie immer führt auch beim Thema Nachhaltigkeit kein Weg an den Daten vorbei. Die sachgemäße Aufbereitung der Daten, wie deren Homogenität, sei von zentraler Bedeutung, so Manuel weiter.

“To do good is in our DNA.” Johnathan Sutton (16:41-16:43) Westfalia Fruit is known around the world for their incredible, healthy, fresh avocados. They have the largest avocado-growing footprint in the world, plus grow fruits like mangoes, kiwis, limes, oranges, litchis, clementines, grapes, coconuts, pomegranates, cherries… the list goes on and on! What's most phenomenal about Westfalia other than their extensive range of produce is their commitment to sustainability. The company aims to be 100% carbon-neutral by 2049, which is also their 100th birthday. Westfalia was founded over 70 years ago by Dr. Hans Merensky, who acquired an almost irreparable estate in the Limpopo Province of South Africa. “Dr. Merensky was a very gifted prospector, an acclaimed and dedicated humanitarian, and a huge part of the good we do today… it's in our fiber and our heritage,” Raina Nelson, President and CEO of Westfalia Fruit USA says. Dr. Merensky was dedicated to improving his Westfalia Estate's resources by conserving water and revitalizing the soil. These regenerative farming practices are the foundation for what Westfalia lies on today, and at the time helped the local economy by providing community relief thanks to growing avocados and using water conservation infrastructure. “The concept of regenerative farming and regenerative agriculture practices is the foundation upon which Westfalia has been built on.” Lori Taylor (6:05-6:15) Not familiar with the term regenerative farming? Regenerative farming comes from indigenous wisdom and offers a framework to grow food in harmony with nature while restoring the land from depletion, exploitation and harmful farming practices. Those that follow regenerative farming principles understand what the natural resource availability is, aim to eliminate the use of harmful chemicals, work to integrate animals back onto their agricultural land and prioritize soil health. Keeping the soil healthy is what ensures growers produce nutrient dense, great tasting produce while helping heal the Earth. Westfalia is focused on using as little water as possible, keeping the rest of the plants and animals on the planet in mind who need water which is a finite resource we're quickly running out of. They're also focused on reducing waste by ensuring their byproducts are used to create healthy ones, specifically in the cosmetic industry. One way Westfalia does this is by creating health products using the skins and the stones (the pit) of their avocados. These stones are ground up and used to replace microplastics that are found far too often in cosmetics. At the end of the day, it costs more money to throw things away, not just for the company but for the rest of the world who has to deal with landfills and the energy expenditure that comes with. Plus, consumers are hungry for cosmetics that have as little plastics in them as possible. “We can't hide behind the facts of where avocados are grown and where avocados are sold. The distance is huge and the transport routes are challenging from an environmental perspective and a water use perspective.” Johnathan Sutton (14:34-14:50) Westfalia is certainly on track to hit their 2049 target of being carbon neutral! They're looking at how to reduce their carbon footprint within their shipping partners and any other ways to use their resources as efficiently as possible. Recently, Westfalia found that five of their business units were carbon neutral and they are pushing for everything from the fertilizer, the packaging, the supply chain and more to become completely carbon neutral. Plus, in France, all of their products are supplied in cardboard and they've gotten rid of plastic! Add in Westfalia's efforts to use biological pesticides instead of chemical ones and you've got one of the most impactful, sustainable, healthy companies in the produce industry making a massive dent in saving our planet.

We're talking to Yemi Penn. She's an engineer, author, documentary producer, speaker, and is currently pursuing her PhD around how trauma can be transformative. She's a survivor herself who's self awareness and growth is ongoing. She's in the midst of transformation and change. So, it was the perfect time to dig really deep into topics like why life doesn't have to be a struggle, what trauma is, how the aftermath of traumatic events can lead to struggle, and the huge question of what is the point of trauma?Yemi then boldly and openly tells us about her own traumatic experience with specific examples of how it's rippled out into her life. A loss of power and consent led to a minimization of her voice.We explore how this became intertwined with personality, how she uses her voice now, the power of acknowledgement and awareness, some of the healing modalities Yemi has used in her own healing journey, and we even breach the topic of restorative justice and how punishment just isn't working to stop perpetrators. This episode may be hard to listen to for some of you, but I hope it inspires you to face any discomfort you may feel when you're ready in order to embrace the sometimes messy inner work required to heal your own trauma.We end the episode by considering the question, what would life look like without trauma. Yemi says she searched the depths of her soul to answer this question and the others throughout this vulnerable and informative interview. I invite you now to imagine for yourself a life and a world without trauma. If we can do that, we can get there.TRIGGER WARNING: We discuss child sexual abuse.

Summer construction activity is at its peak in the US. And as we look for sustainable alternatives for bricks or pavers or other construction materials, we look Eastwards to one of our guests whose journey I have followed since our last recording. He is a very creative solution made almost entirely of waste and 2.5 times stronger than regular brick. This episode we felt definitely needed an encore.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------When Manish Kothari, Managing Director of Rhino Machines and a second-generation entrepreneur involved in the casting and foundry industry in India, saw how dark, dusty and dangerous this industry was to the environment and the workers, he decided to do something about it. He is a social entrepreneur with a passion for innovation who decided to tackle the dust and sand waste that the foundry creates. He reached out to Shridhar Rao, a partner in the architect firm R + D studio to make a brick by combining the foundry dust with plastic to create the first Silica Plastic Block (SPB). The SPB tested 2.5 times stronger than regular brick and it was comparable in cost to the regular bricks in Indian metro cities.What makes this solution and entrepreneur special is Manish's obstinance about not patenting his innovation. He in fact believes in assisting and sharing the know-how with other sustainable entrepreneurs.

On this episode of the California Now Podcast, host Soterios Johnson explores the Golden State's wide range of eco-friendly travel experiences with four thoughtful guests. First, Johnson connects with Jessica Blotter, owner and CEO of Kind Traveler. The two chat about California's many sustainable destinations and how to give back while booking your next hotel. Blotter also shares tips for minimizing your footprint while traveling. After that, our host talks with Oksana and Max St. John, the couple behind the award-winning blog Drink Tea & Travel. The pair recount their recent sustainable road trip in the Golden State, discussing stops in Sonoma County, the Tri-Valley region, and the seaside town of Ventura. The duo toured the state in a Tesla—an experience they found to be easy and enjoyable. Lastly, Johnson speaks with Ida Kaller-Vincent, Eco Tour Manager for San Diego-based non-profit Ocean Connectors. From witnessing gray whales by boat, birdwatching by bike, and kayaking amid sea lions, Kaller-Vincent shares the glory of experiencing the area's rich biodiversity up close. As an added bonus, all tour proceeds go back into funding the organization's educational programs.
“For anything to happen on a grand scale, we need to have culture supported… Artists are good at planting these seeds, putting the stories out there and for anybody. The key is repetition. So, if you encounter a certain story, certain type of story in the music you listen to, in the articles that you read, in the billboard that you see or the murals that you see...at some point, it creates a frame that you can start to live in and the changes become something that is natural.” Chantal Bilodeai on Electric Ladies Podcast Stories. Music. Art. They move us in some magical way that nothing else taps. Why? Why do they matter to climate and energy? Because they can touch us in a way nothing else can, inspire us and motivate us, and we need every tool in the toolbox to address climate change. How? Listen to Sandra Bargman and Chantal Bilodeau, who created, produced and performed the “Earth Intention: A Climate Cabaret” recently to inspire people through music and the arts to take the necessary action to save the planet, in this inspiring conversation with Electric Ladies podcast host Joan Michelson. You'll hear: Why culture is vital to massive social, political and economic change. How music and the arts move people through “hope.” How to communicate climate messages in stories without being preachy or awkward About using the arts to reach people who may not naturally “get” the climate message, or who may be overwhelmed. Plus, insightful career advice …. “It's never too late to pivot. I think people who are mid-career, women particularly, we always feel like, ‘oh, my time was then,' (but) it is never too late to pivot…And the other thing that reflects my career is, don't feel as though you have to pick one lane. You can pick more than one lane and both of those lanes or more can be successful.” Sandra Bargman on Electric Ladies podcast You'll also want to listen to (some may have been recorded under our previous name, Green Connections Radio): Deborah Rutter, President, the John F.

Last Saturday two trucks carrying smuggled fertilizer across the southern border between India and Nepal were seized at Nepal customs. Police took charge and were escorting the trucks to the capital Kathmandu when they were blocked on the highway by desperate farmers in Dhading district, who seized 400 of the 500 bags of fertilizer and vanished, reported the Kathmandu Post. Fertilizer shortages are a perennial issue in Nepal. This year the Russian attack on Ukraine has caused a global shortage, possibly worsening the situation here. Also, the monsoon came early, so the fertilizer was needed sooner than usual because farmers were ready to plant rice in their waterlogged fields earlier than in most years. A day after the truck hijacking some farmers started planting without the fertilizers, hoping for the best, again reported the Post. Those events symbolize the state of agriculture in Nepal today. Dependent on external input, the country's food supply is at the whim of events outside of its border so when calamities hit, like the invasion of Ukraine and the Covid-19 pandemic, alarm bells ring. On top of that, much agriculture land is unused as hundreds of thousands potential farmers seek greener pastures working as migrant labourers in India, Malaysia and Persian Gulf countries. Finally, climate change is scrambling weather patterns and generating many more extreme weather events, like drought and torrential rainfall, which endanger crops. Once a rice exporter, today Nepal depends on imports to feed its nearly 30 million people. In its recent budget the government, like many before it, pledged to revive agriculture. Led by mechanization and improved seeds the country will boost rice production three times and cut overfall food imports by one-third, it promised. Today's guest, development policy expert Jagannath Adhikari, is sceptical of the promises. He says that Nepal should be focusing on rebooting traditional family farming, in part so it generates enough food to feed the growing number of urban dwellers, but also so growers can earn the increased amount of cash required by today's farming families.

In an effort to replace toxic chemical dyes in apparel, Huue are developing biosynthetic dyes — their initial focus is to provide an alternative to synthetic indigo. “We are creating a biosynthetic solution that is a one-to-one drop-in replacement into the textile supply chain. We're creating these bio-identicals that can minimize the footprint of production of these dyes and pigments, but without disrupting the supply chain process that is required to make the authentic look and feel of denim that everybody knows and loves.” -Michelle Zhu Are you familiar with biosynthetics? If so, do you understand what they are or how they operate? So often terms like this get thrown around in the *sustainability* space, without a lot of context or definitions. They are assumed to fall into the good box or the bad box, when yet again – there is a lot more information needed to understand the bigger picture. So, here's the super basics – biosynthetics are made of renewable materials, instead of being petroleum based. We often hear about them from a fiber stance, so fabrics made up of biopolymers from corn or sugar or other ingredients. But on this week's show, we're diving into more on how biosynthetics are being used for textile dyeing. Today, the majority of our clothes are colored with synthetic dyes. If we look back, the first synthetic dye was accidentally discovered in the 1850s when an 18-year old chemist was searching for a treatment for malaria. And since then, they've gradually taken over due to their speed and efficacy. But take indigo – the color that we align with denim. Today, every kilogram of synthetic indigo produced uses 75x the amount of petroleum. And it involves the use of dangerous chemicals like benzene, formaldehyde, and sodamide. This week's guest cofounded a company that's leveraging biosynthetics to address the extreme toxicity across the textile dye industry. They've started with indigo blue, and are building one-to-one solutions that can be inserted directly into the current manufacturing infrastructure.

Extreme heatwaves, devastating floods, and raging wildfires regularly compete for news headlines. How can we use these frightening and dangerous events as a catalyst for adapting to extreme weather patterns as we continue climate mitigation efforts? What imminent weather events are looming on the horizon and how should we be preparing now for the potential worst-case scenario? Chief Investment Officer Tony Roth sat down with Dr. Daniel Swain, a Climate Scientist at UCLA's Institute of the Environment & Sustainability, to discuss the intersection of wild weather and climate change and the challenges and opportunities for the environment and your portfolio.
In this episode of the #CodaEarth podcast about reducing harmful gases in anaesthesia, host Laura Raiti is joined by Jessica Hegedus - an anaesthetist working in Wollongong, New South Wales, who is also a member of Doctors for the Environment. As someone passionate about environmental sustainability within anaesthesia, Jessica starts by telling Laura that the one thing that motivates her the most when it comes to the climate crisis is the fact that it's an emergency that will end up impacting us all; as both citizens living in the community, and professionally as healthcare workers responding to its impacts. This puts many of us in the unique position in that we're contributing to a crisis inadvertently as healthcare professionals, that we'll also be on the frontline responding to. They talk about the importance of reframing climate change as a health problem, and how as healthcare professionals we have the responsibility to protect and preserve health. Jessica notes that while reducing healthcare admissions won't resolve the climate crisis, that our leadership is essential, and that healthcare professionals are an important and trusted voice for action. She believes that we can send a powerful signal by getting our own house in order and that all contributions towards a low carbon society are important, however small. Focus then shifts to the #CodaEarth Action – reducing harmful volatile agents used in anaesthesia - which not only make a significant contribution to CO2 healthcare emissions, but whose use is also directly within our control. Collective attention to reducing the impact is both meaningful and achievable opportunity for healthcare providers to demonstrate their leadership. Laura and Jess also discuss six evidence-based actions to reduce anaesthetic gas usage that are practical and don't compromise patient care. The actions include removing Desflurane from clinical use, de-commissioning Nitrous oxide piping, rationalizing Nitrous oxide where possible, advocating that healthcare workers use the lowest possible fresh gas flow, prioritising alternatives that have less environmental impact, and tracking progress, sharing results, and engaging with others. Jess was inspired due to frustrations with slow progress on climate change, combined with increasingly visible effects of the crisis on the community and her practice, and has found that it can be both empowering and rewarding to exercise advocacy and effect change within her patch. Jess also tells Laura that she believes there are meaningful actions we can all take that will contribute to a greater whole, and that the potential for healthcare providers to do this is immense. Jess believes that all contributions are meaningful and all roles are important, and that people shouldn't be deterred by how big the problem is; perfect is the enemy of good and something is better than nothing.

On this week's show, we talk with climate expert Alan Miller about his recent, critically important book, co-authored with Durwood Zaelke, ”Cut Super Climate Pollutants Now! The Ozone Treaty's Urgent Lessons for Speeding Up Climate Action.” Listen in to the revolutionary story of a 10-year sprint to reduce 'super climate pollutants', cut global warming in half, and avert catastrophe. We have a decade or less to radically slow global warming before we risk hitting irreversible tipping points that will lock in catastrophic climate change. The good news is that we know how to slow global warming enough to avert disaster. Miller explains how a 10-year sprint to cut short-lived “super climate pollutants” -- primarily HFC refrigerants, black carbon (soot), and methane -- can cut the rate of global warming in half, so we can stay in the race to net zero climate emissions by 2050.

Sustainability is not just what you consume. It's a deeply fulfilling way to be in the world. We ask why we can't just build arks & sail away with a few privileged like minded people & instead define value in seeking a sensorial life w a connection to place & community. Since moving to Indonesia Kristine has learnt that you can't count in minutes & hours the value of what you produce, she has watched her little boy learn to read nature & that when you unlearn some things it gives you space to learn new things.
