The use of renewable fuels and aviation will be the focus of Keuka College’s next Community Luncheon Series presentation Thursday, April 25, at noon in the lower level of Lightner Library.
Suzanne Hunt of Hunt Country Vineyards and founder and president of Hunt Green LLC, is the featured speaker. Hunt Green provides strategic advising for decision-makers in business, government, and not-for-profit arenas on a range of renewable energy, sustainable mobility, agriculture, and green design challenges.
Hunt, who also serves as senior adviser at the Carbon War Room, earned a bachelor’s degree in environmental science from Penn State and a dual master’s degree in international affairs and natural resource management from American University and the UN’s University for Peace in Costa Rica.
The Carbon War Room seeks to accelerate profitable, entrepreneurial solutions which reduce carbon emissions. It focuses on the market barriers that reinforce the status quo and prevent capital from flowing to sustainable solutions with compelling returns.
She has worked with such clients as the U.S. Department of Energy, National Wildlife Federation, Inter-American Development Bank, Natural Resources Defense Council,
Wolfensohn & Co., Global Bio-energy Partnership, UN Food and Agriculture Organization, and a number of clean technology companies, among others.
Her most recent initiatives include work on the role of agriculture in climate change, renewable energy, and green building in South America.
At Hunt Country Vineyards, Hunt assists with the ongoing implementation of sustainability practices including biodiesel production and use.
