I’m sustainable

I gave up smoking and picked up running – it’s much better for the body and mind. I had a vegetable garden for a few years and shared our produce with the neigbhours – some asked if we expected to be paid. I saved up and bought a heat pump – it was a rare pleasure to see the oil-tank dismantled in the basement of our home. I also plant trees when the occasion arises and I commute by train when I go to the office. We have established a solid sustainability policy at REVOLVE that I am proud to be part of.

The future I want

I believe we can all make a positive impact in our little ways, but that the biggest difference can be made by politicians: we need people in power who see far into the future, not the short-sighted ones who are too often out for a quick win. I don’t think our cities need more metal boxes (hybrid, electric or other) congesting the streets. More bike lanes are great, but more trees would be even better – the two are not mutually exclusive, but trees are most often overlooked. I want to see nature integrated more into the urban fabric of our cities so that biodiversity in its many forms can flourish. I would also like to see more green corridors connecting natural areas in and around cities. I think green credits would be a huge incentive for home-owners to invest in energy transition technologies, and that carbon taxes should be imposed on all companies who contribute to greenhouse gas emissions. I want to see a world emerge that is defined less by the exploitation and more about the restoration of our natural resources.
