Live Earth founder 'creates low carbon website'
One of the founders of the Live Earth campaign has claimed businesses may have a part to play in the "third industrial revolution" he feels is required to cut global carbon emissions.
Former banker Michael Mathres - who worked to develop the environmental awareness concert - has created the Climate Capital Network, a website which offers low carbon solutions for firms including renewable energy, energy-efficient improvements, recycling and other forms of clean technology.
Some 25 US and UK-based entrepreneurs providing low carbon solutions have registered with the site - which Mr Mathres claims will help fuel the transition to creating a low carbon economy.
"Climate Capital Network will mobilise global investors and connect them with these low-carbon solutions," he claimed.
The Live Earth series of concerts took place on June 7th 2007 in a number of cities around the world, including Wembley Stadium in London, Giants Stadium in New York, Aussie Stadium in Sydney and the HSH Nordbank Arena in Hamburg, among others.
