Fresh from the success of their first Fellowship Program on innovations in Mobility with leading courier and logistics company LBC, Impact Hub Manila is launching its new Fellowship Program focused on sustainable energy solutions in partnership with the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and Peace and Equity Foundation (PEF).
After the historic Paris climate agreements in November 2015, there has been a growing interesting the role of clean technology entrepreneurship and innovation including sustainable energy as an essential tool to reach climate change goals. Energy production and consumption threatens not only health and quality of life, but also biodiversity, ecosystems and climate change. Sustainable energy will be the driving force for reducing poverty, promoting social progress, equity, enhanced resilience, economic growth and environmental sustainability. “We believe that by supporting entrepreneurs in the energy sector, we can slow down climate change,” said PEF Chairperson Benjamin Abadiano.
