Summary

In my career and free time I have been deeply involved into renewable energy and sustainability issues. I believe that through sustainable business it will be possible to create unique competitive advantage and add value to the business. In most cases, this this can be implemented with active and open discussion about targets, business processes and strategy. I have been developing products and services in renewable energy industry and currently I am putting in use my consulting experience to create a better wold for us and our children.

I am interested to have a chat with anyone who is interested or wants to know more about renewable energy or sustainable business. Let us not forget that sustainable business contains in addition to environment side also social and economical sides.
