EXCLUSIVE YEARS TWITTER CHAT: Greening the Bottom Line
Monday June 9 — Join us on Twitter at 4pm ET for an exclusive online chat with two young leaders and a major corporation who are going green to save the world and boost the bottom line. Follow @YEARSofLIVING and #YEARSProject to join the conversation.
Can a handful of intrepid business school students create lasting solutions to climate change? The Environmental Defense Fund thinks so. That’s why they’ve set up the Climate Corps program. Each year one hundred of the country’s brightest MBA students are tapped to spend their summer embedded with major corporations, where they analyze energy waste and then propose solutions that slash costs and limit pollution.
Years of Living Dangerously followed three Climate Corps fellows in their quest to slash waste, cut pollution and save money for the businesses they advised. Two of those fellows, Jenise Young (@jenise_n) and Scott Miller Scott (@WallToGreenSt), will answer YOUR questions in an exclusive Twitter chat on Monday, June 9 at 4pm ET. They will be joined by an executive of Caeser Entertainment Corporation, via their Caesars Code Green (@CETCodeGreen) handle.
More on Jenise & Scott:
Jenise Young worked to find ways to make Texas Southern University a more efficient campus by identifying energy savings for three campus buildings including the student center. Young, whose fellowship was funded by the Wells Fargo Foundation, was also tasked with assisting Dr. Robert Bullard in establishing a climate change research consortium for historically black colleges and universities in the Gulf Coast and Southern Atlantic regions.
Scott Miller worked to identify energy efficiency opportunities from exterior lighting and pool, spa and fountain pump systems at Caesars Entertainment Corporation. By implementing Miller’s project recommendations at all domestic properties, Caesars Entertainment could save more than $350,000 and 6 million kilowatt hours of electricity annually, which is enough to power more than 500 homes for a year and avoid 3,400 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions.
"We are all part of something that we truly believe in, and are passionate about, and we believe is making a positive impact, maybe at a local level or regional level, it has a positive ripple effect. Absolutely, we can change the world, but so can anyone." - Scott Miller, Climate Corps Fellow
