Sustainability guru David Nussbaum has been appointed to the board of energy giant Drax, a company that he says is already on the right path to embracing the new, more responsible business environment in which we live.
It’s counterintuitive. David Nussbaum, a former chief executive of the World Wildlife Fund in the UK, has been appointed non-executive director at power company Drax. A man who lives and breathes sustainability is working for a company that switches on the lights. Surely they’re the enemy? Power companies burn through natural resources and fossil fuels to keep our gadgets working.
“If we want to continue to be a truly modern energy company that delivers on our aim of changing the way energy is generated, supplied and used for a better future, we need to be able to adapt."
–Dorothy Thompson, chief executive, Drax[/pull-
