Scott Cooney is a 5 time eco-entrepreneur. Currently the Founder and CEO of Pono Home, an energy efficiency company, Scott’s former career included founding Sustainable Enterprises Media (now the world’s largest clean tech news company), as well as stints as an adjunct professor of Sustainability in the MBA program at the University of Hawaii, green business startup coach, author of our very own Green Living Ideas book, along with Build a Green Small Business: Profitable Ways to Become an Ecopreneur (McGraw-Hill), and developer of the sustainability board game GBO Hawai’i. As a serial eco-entrepreneur who has started, grown and sold multiple green businesses, Scott believes that capitalism, true capitalism, can be a powerful force for change, but that our current version of capitalism is severely hampered by perverse subsidies and negative externalities that make unsustainable products less expensive than healthier alternatives. Scott is a 25+ year vegetarian, avid cyclist, and an organic gardener. (twitter: scottcooney)
