Founder of Green Gas
2018 Climate Fellow
Green Gas unlocks new funding for climate solutions by embedding carbon pricing into gasoline purchases. Americans who are concerned about climate change will appreciate having more sustainable choices at the gas pump with carbon-neutral gasoline and personalized green purchasing technologies. Green Gas works with gas stations and uses financial technology to bring convenience and affordability to sustainable consumerism. By embedding carbon offsets into fossil fuels, Green Gas leverages society’s unavoidable fossil fuel use to finance sustainable development. Green Gas enables businesses and the public to work together to channel the will and resources needed to solve the critical challenge of climate change.
