VG CEO Drew Shula Speaks on Green Economy Panel at Pasadena Rose Bowl
On October 16, Verdical Group’s Founder & CEO Drew Shula spoke at the Green Economy Conference & Career Match, hosted at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, CA.
He was featured on the “Green Business Opportunities” Panel alongside representatives from Innovate Pasadena, San Gabriel Valley Economic Development, and the Sustainable Environmental Management Company. During the panel, Shula spoke about Verdical Group’s difficult decision to stop accepting funding for our annual Net Zero Conference from SoCalGas, a southern California utility.
“We realized we were helping them prolong their existence and giving them credibility through association with our own sustainable brand. To solve the climate crisis, we need natural gas to die and get out of buildings as quickly as possible,” Shula said.
The event also featured a “Future of Jobs” panel and “Exponential Thinking Awake” Workshop.
