Video: Tom, CEOs on Green Business

Tom Ashbrook moderated a recent panel with two CEOs who are looking at issues of energy efficiency and lower carbon footprints in their businesses and the economy at large. The event, held March 25, was sponsored by Babson College’s F.W. Olin Graduate School of Business and the Babson Energy & Environmental Club. On Point has looked at green energy issues in many recent segments, including our latest on green cities and urban efficiency.

Martin Madaus, CEO of Millipore Corp., and Paul Sellew, CEO of Harvest Power, spoke with Tom about their own companies’ efforts and the future of green business:

    I wish there were a transcript of the Babson College video linked for us here; I’ve had trouble boosting the audio, but once I got that okay, I’m listening a over and over and over. The discussion covers, with knowledgeable business people in the field, directions that local newspaper Op-Ed’s, editorials, letters, public meetings, etc., at least in western Mass., have been arguing about for years.
    Lots of info. Lots of ideas.
