In November a diverse coalition of industry leaders, environmental groups and universities hosted the Idaho Climate Summit: Safeguarding Idaho’s Economy in a Changing Climate. While conversations about climate change in Idaho have been happening within various sectors and constituencies for quite some time, the summit was the first successful attempt to bring together a wide array of business, academic, public and environmental representatives with a focus on economic opportunities in addition to the very real impacts to our environment and way of life.

I had the chance to talk with a few of the speakers from the conference about their perspectives on why climate change is an important reality to make business decisions around and what opportunities exist for innovation that will help grow the Gem State’s economic vibrancy due to the climate reality.

We hope you enjoy this conversation with Julia Kertz Grant from Micron Technology, David Eichberg from HP Inc, Kate Gordon from the Risky Business Project and the Paulson Institute, and Aimee Christensen from the Sun Valley Institute for Resilience.

Got an idea for a show? We’d love to hear about it! Contact us at buildingagreeneridaho@gmail.com

Sustainable design requires an integrated, holistic approach to development. Conversations about sustainable architecture often focus on healthy materials and high-performance building, but truly ground-up, integrated design requires working with, well, the ground. And it doesn’t get any more ground up than the earth!
