Leading Global Investors Call the False Dichotomy Between Economy and Environment “Nonsense”
A top GE executive is calling the political battle between economy and environment “nonsense.”
In a video interview (featured below) at an international clean energy investment conference last week, Mark Vachon, vice president of GE’s successful Ecomagination program, hailed “environmental performance” as a key driver for business.
“There’s this theory that you have to pick one: economics or environmental performance. That’s nonsense. Innovation is the way you can have both,” said Vachon.
