The Impossible mission — to save the planet with a burger
April 5, 2019 | Financial Times Emiko Terazono and Tim Bradshaw in London.

Impossible Foods discovered that “heme”, an iron-containing protein molecule present in plants and animals, was the magic ingredient giving meat its aroma, taste and texture. Heme, produced through genetic engineering and yeast fermentation, is also behind the “juices” that make the Impossible burger bleed... In 2019, the company has introduced a new and improved burger after swapping wheat for soyabeans and using less salt. After signing its distribution deal with Burger King it is fundraising to increase the capacity of its production facility in Oakland, California.

Along with rival Beyond Meat, which is preparing to float in the US, Impossible has sought to lure meat-eating consumers who want to reduce their meat intake or are looking for tasty options, casting the net wider than vegans....... Pat Brown , 64-year-old former professor of biochemistry, is the founder of Impossible. ..Mr Brown seems to have slipped into his role as an entrepreneur with ease. He told investors that if they backed him, he was going to make them “insanely rich”.

His pronouncements that he was not bothered about exits have been perceived as arrogance by some venture capitalists. However he has still raised more than $475m since 2011 and attracted plenty of other backers, including Viking Global, Bill Gates, and Li Ka-shing’s Horizons Ventures. Investors hope the latest fundraising will value the company at more than $1bn.

Bruce Friedrich, who launched the Good Food Institute, a US not-for-profit that promotes alternative proteins and advises start-ups, calls Mr Brown “a prophet” and praises his “infectious optimism”....If the Impossible burger is successful, Mr Brown hopes to eliminate animal meat in the food chain by 2035, helping the earth to restore its vegetation cover.

Al Gore: sustainability is history’s biggest investment opportunity
Owen Walker YESTERDAY

Fourteen years ago Mr Gore co-founded a sustainability-focused fund management company with David Blood, former head of Goldman Sachs Asset Management. Rather than the colourful “Blood & Gore Partners”, they named the business Generation Investment Management. The London-based group has since attracted $19bn in assets, managing money for institutional investors and affluent individuals, mainly in North America and Europe....Mr Gore has just given a presentation to UBS wealth advisers at the bank’s annual investment get-together. Unlike most of the PowerPoint-packed presentations, Mr Gore’s delivery is a glitzy affair, with dramatic theme music and video clips of crashing glaciers. His talk receives a standing ovation and he is mobbed for more selfies at the end....Generation lists large public sector investors among its clients, such as Calstrs, the $223bn Californian teachers’ pension plan, the $192bn New York State pension plan and the UK’s Environment Agency retirement fund. It also manages money for wealthy individuals but has stopped short of opening to retail investors. Almost all its assets are run in equity mandates, yet $1bn is invested in private equity

Ms. Wynne: Painting wasteful policies with a green brush won’t fool Ontarians - The Globe and Mail
CHRISTINE VAN GEYN
Contributed to The Globe and Mail
Published Monday, Dec. 21, 2015

The cap-and-trade system for reducing emissions of greenhouse gases is a revenue plan couched in green language. It is a complex scheme that involves the government creating financial products called “carbon credits” that it then forces industries to buy and trade. Of course it requires the establishment of an enormous bureaucracy. The plan is projected to raise $2-billion in revenue for the government each year.

Absolutism in the Church of Green - The Globe and Mail
GORDON GIBSON

Special to The Globe and Mail

Published Monday, Dec. 31 2012,

Our competitive edge in this world is no longer skilled labour and capital. The world is awash in both. We either responsibly exploit our natural resources or settle for less health care, education and lower pensions.

A choice of automatic opposition to resource development is one option, if that’s what we collectively want. But that choice should be understood as a public policy question with consequences, not as a religious one of no cost.

Now, White is telling his salespeople to find creative ways to drum up new business, from pitching environmental consulting services to existing clients to devising novel ways to finance deals. White knows a downturn is inevitable, but he hopes to cushion the blow. ...Its property managers now dispense green advice. Last year, CBRE helped shave $150,000 a year in electricity expenses at Phoenix Plaza, a pair of Arizona office buildings owned by General Electric's (GE) pension fund.

Ms. Reisman also took inspiration from Mickey Drexler, a Wall Street darling and former head of clothier Gap Inc., who is now CEO of J. Crew Group, on whose board of directors Ms. Reisman sits. "What I learned from Mickey is: You have to have a point of difference and you have to have a real passion for what you're trying to do. Second, you're not going to get it all right, which I knew from experience."

Since 1990, the Friends of the Environment Foundation at Toronto-Dominion Bank has helped fund more than 19,000 environmental projects with the aim of helping Canadian communities to reduce, reuse and recycle. ..."“With the big banks pulling in the profits they are, there is greater pressure to create and preserve a positive brand, without succumbing to the criticism of ‘greenwashing,’” he says. Branding itself as a green bank “attracts loyal customers and employees because they are going a step further than the conventional green initiatives.” "

Sherbourne Common: Clean, green, brainy and blue - The Globe and Mail
Jul. 29, 2011 |G&M|LISA ROCHON. With Sherbourne Common, the
mandate was to heal a neglected part of the waterfront by providing a
neighbourhood-wide water-treatment facility immediately below the park’s
surface...Invisible to the eye, located below the public washrooms, are
the brains of the sewage-treatment facility: a series of disinfecting
machines that use UV light – not the chlorine of yesteryear – to clean
water from the lake and the run-off of surrounding roads, highways &
bldgs. In North America, where dirty water tainted with E. coli
bacteria can be found flowing like nasty rivers into our lakes, this
cleaning process is a rare phenomenon....Without $27-M in funding from
the federal govt., Sherbourne Common would have never happened – and
Toronto would be without a new public asset on previously underused
lands...Sherbourne Common will earn dividends in enhanced tourism for
Toronto, invigorate neighbourhood economies, and rebrand the city as a
place with an intelligent future.

BluEarth on the prowl for renewable energy projects - The Globe and Mail
RICHARD BLACKWELL
From Thursday's Globe and Mail
Published Wednesday, Nov. 24, 2010
BluEarth Renewables Inc. is up and running in Calgary, with Mr. Brown as
CEO and the Keating brothers as “executive advisers” and directors. The
new firm is on the prowl for wind, solar or hydro projects it can
invest in.

The company, if successful, could become a key financier of renewable
ventures, helping struggling projects get on their feet as the industry
expands to take a bigger piece of the energy pie in Canada.

With almost $90-million in capital ready to deploy, mostly from Calgary
private equity firm ARC Financial Corp., BluEarth is looking for
renewable projects that are already generating power, close to
completion, or at least have a “clear line of sight” to a power purchase
agreement with a provincial utility, Mr. Brown said.

Rug cleaner reduces its footprint - The Globe and Mail
Summer 2007 | Report on Small Business magazine | Ken Hunt. In
the cavernous cleaning area of Turco-Persian Rug Co., carpets snake
their way through shaking, scrubbing and rinsing machines, while workers
attack stains by hand. When in full swing, Turco-Persian can clean up
to 200 carpets/week - and wash away more than 11,350 L of hot water each
day, about the same as taking a 14-hr shower. And that's an
improvement: Until owner Gregory Kasparian installed automatic shut-offs
that close the taps when there's no rug on the line, Turco-Persian used
2X the water it does now...As much as 90% of hot-water energy literally
goes down the drain. Waterloo-based RenewAbility Energy's
Power-Pipe—basically just a section of copper pipe about 150 cm
long—recycles up to 60% of the heat lost in waste water and can save
businesses 40% on their energy bills. As water goes through the
Power-Pipe, it clings to a thin film and transfers its heat to cold
water circulating on the outside of the drain pipe.

Energy Lessons from Ancient Rome -
Jan. 20, 2011| BusinessWeek| By Alessandra Migliaccio &
Flavia Rotondi. The ancient Romans used water pressure to bring the
city's monumental baths and fountains to life. Flavio and Valerio
Andreoli are using it to produce clean power. Encouraged by generous
renewable energy incentives, their company, Hydrowatt, specializes in
generating electricity from turbines in aqueducts. ..The brothers tap
into modern water pipelines that follow the same routes as the old
aqueducts. Like ancient engineers who studied the land seeking sources
at higher elevations to provide the pressure needed to reach Rome,
Hydrowatt's engineers seek out places where pipelines have valves
designed to release excess pressure as the water flows rapidly down the
mountainsides. Once they identify such a site, the brothers offer local
authorities that control the aqueducts a deal to replace the valves with
Hydrowatt's turbines.

Spearheaded by Ray Mabus, President Obama’s secretary of the Navy and
the former U.S. ambassador to Saudi Arabia, the Navy and Marines are
building a strategy for “out-greening” Al Qaeda, “out-greening” the
Taliban and “out-greening” the world’s petro-dictators. ...If the Navy
really uses its buying power when buying power, and setting building
efficiency standards, it alone could expand the green energy market in a
decisive way.

And, if Congress will simply refrain from forcing the Navy to use corn
ethanol or liquid coal — neither of which are clean or efficient, but
are located in many Congressional districts — we might really get a
green revolution in the military. That could save lives, money and the
planet, and might even help us win — or avoid — the next war. Go Navy!

idea for Dwayne Matthews and/or Nick Parker.

The up-front costs of adopting renewable energy can be daunting. Increasingly, insurers are stepping in to bridge the gap between green intentions and actual capital outlays on green technology. They're backstopping warranties on solar panels, helping start-ups with short track records offer
multi-decade guarantees on their products and win over skeptical customers & project financiers. They're studying weather patterns to offer protection in the event of, say, unusually weak winds that fail to spin turbines, or a volcanic ash cloud from Iceland that diminishes the output of a solar energy facility in Spain. They're advising companies on how best to incorporate renewable energy systems into their
factory operations & offering property insurance that will pay not just to rebuild a structure in the event of a loss like fire but reconstruct it in a more environmentally friendly & energy-efficient way. They're offering coverage to carbon traders.

the hot spot for renewable energy, with its promise of long-term

government yesterday unveiled a roster of 184 agreements to purchase
electricity from wind, solar and small hydro projects proposed by a
range of suppliers, including multinational companies, a farmers'
organization, and native-owned corporations."...The province says the
FIT program will make Ontario a leading jurisdiction for renewable
energy in North America, and is expected to generate 20,000 direct and
indirect jobs in the province in part because companies must procure a
specific portion of the goods and services required for the project in
Ontario.

FEBRUARY 12, 2007 WSJ article by JEFFREY BALL. Global warming
is tougher than localized environmental threats such as smog. That, Hal
Harvey argues, requires environmentalists to focus less on fiery
rhetoric and more on hashing out economically efficient policies that
have political legs. In doling out the dollars at his disposal, Mr.
Harvey uses much the same strategy as the other venture capitalists in
Silicon Valley. He invests where he thinks he'll get maximum return. In
his parlance, he looks for the political "pinch points" likely to
promote technologies that will deliver the most "tons of carbon avoided
per philanthropic dollar invested." He and his colleagues try to compute
that using spreadsheets.
