This week, we turn the spotlight on host Lindsay Baker who has just been named CEO of the International Living Future Institute. Lindsay is a building scientist, market mover, and climate activist focused on transforming the built environment to rise to the challenge of the climate crisis. Most recently, she was Global Head of Sustainability and Impact at WeWork; before that, she grew a smart buildings software startup, Comfy, to acquisition, and held roles at the US Green Building Council and Google.
Linday is excited to be transitioning back to the non-profit world after being in the private sector for a decade, and thrilled to work with ILFI team and community. “I think ILFI is perfect to be instigating some of the needed changes in our movement and industries. It is already a leading-edge and progressive voice,” she says. “I think we need more urgency, more action, and less equivocation about what can be done.”
