Over the past 4 months as I’ve been diving deeper into the world of Climate Change…reading, researching, discussing, and learning a lot more about Climate Change solutions. I quickly found myself searching for a way to organize all the companies and solutions that I was coming across based on the impact areas where their work could be applied. This organizational need came out of my 2 decades of dealing with industry reports, maps, and analysis. What I was searching for was a framework to help get a picture of the companies working to remove all the CO2 that we’ve put into our environment, the CO2 that is the leading cause of climate change.
Eventually I created this Framework to describe the Carbon Industry…the collection of companies’ with the ultimate goal of addressing climate change. With the help of a few people within the AirMiners community and some outside of that community, I refined the framework. Now I’m publishing the first draft for additional feedback and evolution:
The goal for this Framework is to provide a reference to the Carbon Industry to guide investors, business leaders, and entrepreneurs to quickly understand or describe where a specific company is focused on across the the landscape of Sectors working to address climate change.
After you watch the video introduction I look forward to hearing your feedback, there are a few specific areas for feedback that I call out at the end. If you’re a member of the AirMiner’s slack channel, you can post comments on the thread there. Otherwise, please comment here in accordance to my comment policy.
