Australia catches worldwide greentech wave

The Australian Prime Minister, John Howard, has announced a pending bill that will progress his $10bn water plan. It seems it’s not only the country’s most senior politician who has embraced environmentalism, but there is greentech innovation taking place all over the country.

In addition, the handful of early stage venture capitalists operating in Australia have also noticed an uptake in this area. Ben Woodhead of The Australian has covered this trend here and here.

It’s not only Australians who are jumping on the greentech wave – uber VC, John Doerr, gave a moving talk at TED earlier in the year calling on investors, entrepreneurs and those with influence to get involved in the space. As John said, hopefully we can make a difference and its not too little, too late.
