About the author

The author turning on our solar panels in December 2016

David Green holds a degree in physics from Oxford University (with honors) and an MBA from Harvard Business School (with distinction). After HBS he worked for four years as a strategy consultant advising global companies and Nelson Mandela’s new government of South Africa. After returning to the U.S. and marrying his American sweetheart, he returned to his roots in science-based businesses.

He founded, and was CEO of, two biotechnology companies. The first was Harvard Bioscience, which makes scientific instruments used in biopharmaceutical research. The second was BioStage, which makes a stem-cell therapy to treat, and hopefully cure, esophageal cancer. He took both companies public and has raised over $100m in private and public capital.

After being injured in a road accident in the summer of 2014 he resigned from being CEO of BioStage. While at home recovering from the accident, he did the research on getting his home to a zero-carbon footprint. Having “gone zero” and having saved thousands of dollars a year, he now wants to help as many people as possible to do the same.

He has released his second book, Zero Carbon® Pool, how to cut your swimming pool’s carbon emissions, heating bill and electricity bill to zero. You can order it by clicking here
