Sir Richard Branson is one of the most distinguished and successful business entrepreneurs of our times. Over three decades, his visionary ideas have established the Virgin Group as a leading brand in bringing forward-thinking innovations to market, covering areas from music to air travel and, most importantly, the environment.
In recent years, Branson has fully devoted his time and attention to finding solutions for our global environmental challenges through the Virgin Green Fund, which finances the advancement of renewable energy technologies and resource efficiency.
Setting an industry precedent for the future, Branson is determined to reduce the carbon footprint of his airline. He is investing all of its profits in the research and development of clean fuels and new products that might one day allow us to fly without damaging the environment. A born optimist, Branson declares: “There are lists and lists of things that need to be done, but with enough determination we will all get it fixed.”
