Engineering a sustainable future
20 April 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
CEO, Blue Tribe Company
James McGregor is an electrical engineer and the Founder of the Blue Tribe Company. He specialises in helping others create products, services, and even startups that solve some of the world’s biggest environmental and social challenges.
Prior to founding the Blue Tribe Company in early 2017, James was the Project Director (Major Projects) with the CSIRO. He was responsible for the project management, business development and commercialisation of major research programs, including projects in biofuels, world record-breaking solar thermal technologies, smart grid technology, intelligent agent-based modelling technologies, low emissions power generation, and innovations in sustainable built environments.
James is a business mentor and trainer for the ON program, Australia’s national science and technology accelerator program that seeks to unlock innovations that will shape Australia’s future.
In this webinar, James McGregor will talk about the role of engineering and innovation in addressing the world’s most crucial to-do list, The UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Following the bushfires in 2020, COVID in 2021 and now the unprecedented flooding in NSW and QLD, the role of engineering has never been more important.
As we approach Earth Day 2022, James will talk about emerging technologies, the opportunities for engineers to contribute to a more sustainable future, and give you some practical advice on how to scale the sustainability outcomes of your projects.
