My name is Niels Korthals Altes, 36 years old and I live in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. After having worked as a marketeer for Unilever for 7 years I founded GreenSeat (http://www.greenseat.com) in 2005. In 2007 GreenSeat merged with Climate Neutral Group (http://www.climateneutralgroup.com) where I am currently one of the directors. At Climate Neutral Group we help individuals and organisations get insight into their carbon footprint and help them reduce this to zero. This is done by energy saving and offsetting what cannot be reduced through carbon reduction projects elsewhere. When I am not working I like to tour on my bicycle or fly my parapent. No engines involved. This is probably not a coincidence. I firmly believe that we can tackle the climate problem quickly if we have the will to do so. If we put the same effort into this problem as the war on terrorism or selling Big Macs and Coca Cola we can really make a change. We just have to want it more....
