Ep 41: Equity in Cities with Rob Phocas (City of Charlotte) and Jerry Tinianow (City of Denver)

When we think about sustainability in cities, the first things we envision tend to be sexy mobility systems, smart buildings, and urban forests. Fact is, there's an additional layer to the sustainability cake that's just as important (and tasty): equity. It's not enough for sustainability efforts to increase renewable energy production, make water use more efficient, decrease carbon emissions, etc. We have to ensure that sustainability efforts consider the wishes and feedback of all residents, regardless of income level or neighborhood. Also, they should positively impact all parts of the city. In this episode, we unpack how to be more conscious of equity in sustainability city efforts with the help of two sustainability leaders who have been in the trenches promoting equity in their cities -- Rob Phocas from the City of Charlotte and Jerry Tinianow from the City of Denver.

Hiatus Ep #3: Big Data and Sustainability with Kate Brandt (Google)

Dearest Sustainability Defined family, we are taking a short hiatus. This is the third in a brief series of episodes where we'll give a short update on what we're up to outside of the podcast and then replay an oldie but goodie in its entirety. For this month's hiatus, we're revisiting our episode on Big Data & Sustainability. It's one of our most downloaded episodes and features an interview with Kate Brandt, Google's Sustainability Officer. Since this episode originally aired in October of 2017, Kate's continued to push the needle in sustainable tech and spotlight the positive impacts big data can bring to sustainability. She also recently hosted a TED Talk where she drew interesting parallels between Google's Big Data work and the concept of a circular economy. Plus, we mention in the episode Google's effort to map the air pollution in every city in the world, and you can read about the latest on it in a June 2019 blog post here: https://www.blog.google/products/maps/working-map-air-everywhere-and-help-beatairpollution/? Bonus! Stick around for content from Sustainable Brands '19 in Detroit where Scott interviewed Dimitar Vlahov, Director of Knowledge & Insights at Sustainable Brands. They discuss the highlights from the conference, how listeners can engage with Sustainable Brands, and Dimitar's favorite Bulgarian food. We're excited to come back recharged with new content and bad jokes this summer. In the meantime, you can still reach us any time at hosts@sustainabilitydefined.com with your feedback, ideas for shows post-hiatus, and (obviously) bad jokes. ----------------------------- Sustainability Defined is the podcast that seeks to define sustainability, one concept (and bad joke) at a time.

For this month's hiatus episode, we're revisiting Walmart's ambitious supply chain emissions initiative called Project Gigaton, which I think we can all agree is a badass name. For many companies, Scope 3 emissions (fancy term for supply chain emissions) make up most of a company's carbon footprint. Learn more about these emissions and then enjoy insights from all-around good guy Zach Freeze, Senior Director of Product Sustainability at Walmart. Plus, before we replay the episode, we'll tell you about Walmart's April 2019 update on Project Gigaton's progress. It's ramping up!

Hiatus Ep #1: Sustainable Beer with Katie Wallace (New Belgium Brewing Company)

Dearest Sustainability Defined family, we are taking a short hiatus. This is the first in a brief series of episodes in which each episode we'll be giving a short update on what we're up to outside of the podcast and then replaying an oldie but goodie in its entirety. For this month's hiatus episode, we'll be raising a toast to sustainable beer. We didn't get score any free drinks out of this episode (definitely a miss on our part), but we did learn a heck of a lot about what goes into making beer sustainable and why New Belgium is often ranked as the most sustainable beer in the industry. We'll be back soon. We've been at it for over three years, we need a little bit of a break, and we're excited to come back recharged with new content and bad jokes.

Ep 39: Energy Efficiency with Scott Tew (Ingersoll Rand)

Producing a watt of energy from renewable sources is great, but y’know what’s better? Not even using that watt in the first place! This is where energy efficiency comes into play. It allows us to keep doing our favorite activities but not use as much energy in the process. In this episode, you’ll learn about energy efficiency’s many benefits, the challenges to its widespread adoption, which organizations are leading the way in the field, and what you can do to be more energy efficient at home. One of these leading organizations is Ingersoll Rand, a diversified industrial manufacturing company and the sponsor of this episode. Scott Tew, Executive Director of Ingersoll Rand’s Center for Energy Efficiency and Sustainability, joins us to discuss how energy efficiency is core to the organization’s operation and strategy and about trends in the field.

Ep 37: Offshore Wind Energy with Benj Sykes (Orsted) and Liz Burdock (Business Network for Offshore Wind)

Get your lifejackets on, folks - we're going offshore!

We have no doubt you'll be blown away as you hear about the potential for offshore wind and the jobs it can generate. Join us as we speak with experts on two different continents: Jay spoke with Benj Sykes, UK Country Manager at Orsted, in London, and Scott sat down with Liz Burdock, CEO and President of the Business Network for Offshore Wind, at the GreenBiz VERGE conference in Oakland.
