A Responsible Innovation Labs Webinar, hosted January 19, 2023. Featuring Tom Steyer, Co-Founder of Galvanize Climate Solutions, and Astrid Atkinson, Co-Founder and CEO of Camus Energy.
“Kindness doesn’t scale, capitalism does. So we need to win in the markets over and over and over again in a way that protects human beings.” - Tom Steyer
“If you really want to make an impact on something you care about, find a place where your individual skills, strengths, and background are a unique advantage” - Astrid Atkinson
“Don’t be reasonable. The assumption that the status quo is reasonable - throw that right out the window.” - Tom Steyer
“I just got really boring at parties for five years. When people would come up to me and ask, ‘Hey Astrid, how are you’ and I’d tell them, ‘Great. I’m really interested in energy - do you know anyone who works in it?’ The nice thing about the climate space is that if you ask anyone for 45 minutes of their time, they will likely say yes. I found out that the human community associated with the energy and climate space was really rewarding.”
