Catch RNN’s coverage of GREENBUILD Boston on Designing for Sustainability with Ken Filarski…

Mrs. Green's WORLD

For 30 years Conservation International (CI) has worked to protect nature for the benefits it provides to all of us: food, fresh water, livelihoods and a stable climate. They know that people need nature to survive and work relentlessly to build a healthier, more prosperous and productive planet. They know that by protecting nature, we are saving ourselves. And they do all this through science, policy and partnerships with countries, communities and companies. Recently, CI launched a new carbon calculator – it’s the first one on the market that allows users to calculate their carbon footprint and gives them the opportunity to directly offset that footprint. The calculator is the brainchild of Shyla Raghav-Mrs Green – CI’s head of climate change – who wanted to help develop a tool that put more power in consumers’ hands. Shyla is one of the youngest females (and of the few minority women) to lead global climate discussions at the UN and during the Paris Agreement. With the U.S. pulling out of the Paris agreement and the administration’s clampdown on environmental protections, it’s more important than ever before that we are informed of what our footprint is and to understand the ways to make a positive impact.
