Christine Fløysand, By Nature
As the world is looking to go carbon free in 2050, more investments need to go into solutions that can bring us there. The wind sector alone is predicted to grow from 16 GW to 650 GW electricity generation within 2050 according to IEA, yet the industry is driven largely by big players and still moving slow. Her argument is that we need to bring start-ups along for the ride, or risk losing out on valuable innovation and disruptive technologies in the making of a more sustainable world.
Christine is the founder of By Nature, a consultancy firm and start-up advocate within green-tech and sustainability. She is an accomplished and growth-focused executive with extensive experience in marketing communication, PR, business development and operations management. Her passion is green technology, and the scaling up of start-up companies looking to bring innovative and sustainable solutions forward.
