Tom has spent three decades advancing sustainable innovation across global industries. As President and CEO of Solidia Technologies, he leads a team commercializing technologies that have the potential to move the needle on carbon while modernizing one of the world’s oldest and largest industries.
Solidia’s tech is one of the few innovations that truly hits the quadruple bottom line, strengthening the cement and concrete industry in purpose and profits with measurable impacts on carbon, water, energy and waste and products that are higher performing and better for the planet. The $1 trillion global cement and concrete industry is one of the few large enough to make that impact matter, quickly.
Tom sees sustainability as a business necessity – table stakes for countries and companies looking to be compete in a resource-constrained world. He has shared this conviction in a TED Talk during The Countdown launch, at the Aspen Institute’s Ideas Festival, The Denmark Green Business Summit, The Economist Sustainability Summit, Cleantech100, and with CNN, CNBC, the BBC, The New York Times, the Financial Times, Bloomberg, and many more.
