In the Japanese culture, kaizen is a word that explains how good improvement and effective progression in a company works. It means continuous and gradual advancement in an activity in order to create more value and less waste. It is a concept that is at the foundation of the industrial and production areas, which translates into constant growth that involves the entire company structure, starting from employees.
It is exactly from this starting point that Bill Weihl, known as the “green energy czar," launched ClimateVoice, a project aimed to mobilize the voice of the workforce to urge companies to go all in on climate. The initiative, launched on February 22, 2020, calls on employees and college students to speak up and motivate their companies to act upon federal, state and local actions to find solution to the climate crisis.
“We need to collectively reduce emissions much faster" explains Weihl. "To do so we need not just companies like Google, Facebook, Ikea, Walmart and Microsoft, just to mention a few examples".
Public policies would be welcome in order to have a positive impact on the renewable energy industry and the sustainable electrification of building and vehicles, also to support environment-friendly agricultural practices.
