Why it needs a global community to fight the climate crisis

How can we enforce systemic change by setting new industry standards in the venture capital sector and therefore in the next generation of companies that will shape our future? Listen to Philippe Singer's talk where he describes how measuring, reducing and offsetting carbon footprint can change the organization as well as the entire sector. Philippe Singer is the Managing Director & Co-Founder of Leaders for Climate Action. Having graduated with an engineering degree from the Technical University of Berlin, Philippe is an entrepreneur at heart. At eighteen, Philippe started his first social business, followed by a mobile commerce company that sold in 2018. For the past 1.5 years, he’s been busy building Leaders for Climate Action, which has become Europe’s biggest climate initiative started by the digital industry. Founded as non-profit, LFCA aims to transform the digital industry to climate neutrality and inspire other industries to do the same. More than 900 leading VCs and digital companies have since joined the movement. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
