This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Profit and social impact don't have to be incompatible. Emma Colenbrander started her own social business to help address energy poverty in India. She introduces several other corporate change makers and discusses how business and social and environmental change can work hand in hand to improve people's lives.
Emma is a co-founder of social business Pollinate Energy, which works to provide India’s urban poor with access to basic products and services to make their lives better.
In recognition of her work with Pollinate Energy, Emma is a 2014 Laureate Global Fellow. Emma is also currently working for the Australian aid program in the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, where she has worked in results-based management, humanitarian programming for the African continent and international development finance.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
