High speed rail ain't your grandparents' type of train. Modern high speed rail systems sustain speeds of more than 125 MPH, drastically cutting transit time between major destinations while reducing road congestion at the same time. In this episode, you’ll learn about the many benefits of these systems and why so many global cities have developed state of the art systems while the U.S. lags behind. Prior to arriving at our final destination, we’ll also talk with Andy Kunz, President and CEO of the U.S. High Speed Rail Association, who will give us his insights on why he started the Association, how high speed rail can be built economically, and how listeners can help make more high speed rail a reality. Whether you’re sitting in traffic or whizzing by at 200 MPH, we know you’ll enjoy this episode. All aboard!

When we think about sustainability in cities, the first things we envision tend to be sexy mobility systems, smart buildings, and urban forests. Fact is, there's an additional layer to the sustainability cake that's just as important (and tasty): equity. It's not enough for sustainability efforts to increase renewable energy production, make water use more efficient, decrease carbon emissions, etc. We have to ensure that sustainability efforts consider the wishes and feedback of all residents, regardless of income level or neighborhood. Also, they should positively impact all parts of the city. In this episode, we unpack how to be more conscious of equity in sustainability city efforts with the help of two sustainability leaders who have been in the trenches promoting equity in their cities -- Rob Phocas from the City of Charlotte and Jerry Tinianow from the City of Denver. Enjoy!

Dearest Sustainability Defined family, we are taking a short hiatus. This is the third in a brief series of episodes where we'll give a short update on what we're up to outside of the podcast and then replay an oldie but goodie in its entirety.

For this month's hiatus, we're revisiting our episode on Big Data & Sustainability. It's one of our most downloaded episodes and features an interview with Kate Brandt, Google's Sustainability Officer. Since this episode originally aired in October of 2017, Kate's continued to push the needle in sustainable tech and spotlight the positive impacts big data can bring to sustainability. She also recently hosted a TED Talk where she drew interesting parallels between Google's Big Data work and the concept of a circular economy. Plus, we mention in the episode Google's effort to map the air pollution in every city in the world, and you can read about the latest on it in a June 2019 blog post here: https://www.blog.google/products/maps/working-map-air-everywhere-and-help-beatairpollution/?

Bonus! Stick around for content from Sustainable Brands '19 in Detroit where Scott interviewed Dimitar Vlahov, Director of Knowledge & Insights at Sustainable Brands. They discuss the highlights from the conference, how listeners can engage with Sustainable Brands, and Dimitar's favorite Bulgarian food.

We're excited to come back recharged with new content and bad jokes this summer. In the meantime, you can still reach us any time at hosts@sustainabilitydefined.com with your feedback, ideas for shows post-hiatus, and (obviously) bad jokes.

Dearest Sustainability Defined family, we are taking a short hiatus. This is the second in a brief series of episodes where we'll give a short update on what we're up to outside of the podcast and then replay an oldie but goodie in its entirety.

For this month's hiatus episode, we're revisiting Walmart's ambitious supply chain emissions initiative called Project Gigaton, which I think we can all agree is a badass name. For many companies, Scope 3 emissions (fancy term for supply chain emissions) make up most of a company's carbon footprint. Learn more about these emissions and then enjoy insights from all-around good guy Zach Freeze, Senior Director of Product Sustainability at Walmart. Plus, before we replay the episode, we'll tell you about Walmart's April 2019 update on Project Gigaton's progress. It's ramping up!

We're excited to come back recharged with new content and bad jokes this summer. In the meantime, you can still reach us any time at hosts@sustainabilitydefined.com with your feedback, ideas for shows post-hiatus, and (obviously) bad jokes.

For this month's hiatus episode, we'll be raising a toast to sustainable beer. We didn't get score any free drinks out of this episode (definitely a miss on our part), but we did learn a heck of a lot about what goes into making beer sustainable and why New Belgium is often ranked as the most sustainable beer in the industry. We'll be back soon.

We've been at it for over three years, we need a little bit of a break, and we're excited to come back recharged with new content and bad jokes. Cheers!

Grab your notebook and #2 pencil... we're going back to school! Through their operations, research, and course offerings, universities have a large carbon footprint and play a major role in advancing sustainability. Join us as we dive into the nuances of sustainability on college campuses, including a special focus on Penn State University, where one of its professors, Lucy McClain, includes our podcast in her course curriculum. In this episode, you'll hear from Dr. Paul Shrivastava, PSU's Chief Sustainability Officer, Professor McClain, and two of the students in Professor McClain's class who had the privilege of listening to our episodes (and bad jokes) for class. By the end of the episode, you'll be able to ace a test on university sustainability and identify how you can improve sustainability efforts at your current school or alma mater.

Producing a watt of energy from renewable sources is great, but y’know what’s better? Not even using that watt in the first place! This is where energy efficiency comes into play. It allows us to keep doing our favorite activities but not use as much energy in the process. In this episode, you’ll learn about energy efficiency’s many benefits, the challenges to its widespread adoption, which organizations are leading the way in the field, and what you can do to be more energy efficient at home. One of these leading organizations is Ingersoll Rand, a diversified industrial manufacturing company and the sponsor of this episode. Scott Tew, Executive Director of Ingersoll Rand’s Center for Energy Efficiency and Sustainability, joins us to discuss how energy efficiency is core to the organization’s operation and strategy and about trends in the field. Enjoy (efficiently)!

Still hunting for a New Years resolution? Look no further! Reducing food waste is one of the easiest ways we as individuals can fight climate change. It also happens to be the third most impactful solution on Paul Hawken’s Project Drawdown list to reverse global warming (see Episode 32 for our interview with Paul Hawken). We covered this important topic in early 2016, back when Jay and Scott were both single and ready to mingle in DC. There’s much to update on food waste so after we air the original 2016 episode, stay tuned as we investigate current trends in food waste as well as the latest happenings from our friends at Misfit. Happy New Year!

When we say “sustainability,” the first thing you think about is how we bury our dead, right? Ok, we rarely think about it either, but by the end of this episode, we think you’ll agree that green burial has a significant environmental impact. We also hope the episode spurs conversations with your loved ones about your (and their) end of life wishes. The perfect guest joins us to chat about this interesting topic - Elizabeth Fournier, also known as “The Green Reaper.” With a nickname like that, we knew that she could keep up with our bad jokes. Enjoy this lively episode about green burial!

While we know our listeners are beautiful inside and out, we all have our go-to beauty and personal care products that help us feel fresh and clean. Dating would be a huge challenge without 'em. However, some of these products harm our health and the environment due to their ingredients, packaging, and manufacturing processes. We'll talk about the sustainability of beauty and personal care products generally and then explore how the world's largest beauty products company embraces sustainability when we chat with Danielle Azoulay, L'Oreal USA's Head of CSR and Sustainability.

There are all kinds of claims out there about compostability, bio-based packaging, and biodegradability. In this episode, we clarify all those terms, explain why they’re important, and discuss the latest trends in biodegradable products. We then bring on our expert guest Susanna Carson, someone who once wore a compostable ball gown, to tell us about her bio-based product companies and what we should all know about biodegradable products.

Armed with this new info, you’ll be sure to impress at your next party - a party that will undoubtedly feature compostable cups (we’re told that parties with compostable cups never break down...except for the cups).

You, dear listener, may be one of the few Americans who knows that 97% of climate scientists believe climate change is human-caused... but how do you approach the topic with someone who doesn't believe it's even happening? And how many climate change skeptics are out there? We talk in this episode with the man who has the answers to these questions and more.

Ed Maibach, Director of George Mason University's Center for Climate Change Communication, has been researching for the past several years the various ways Americans think about climate change and how to motivate people to act on this issue. He's even developed his own way to categorize the different ways Americans think about climate change, including our personal favorites, "Dismissive Dan" and "Alarmed Alice." Don't be a Dismissive Dan.

We've been told we have the faces for podcasting, but apparently the U.S. Green Building Council thinks we have the faces for speeches too. USGBC invited us to its annual GreenCon event to give a keynote speech on existing buildings, and here for your listening pleasure is a live recording of our talk. It's certainly a timely topic - in 2015, about 40% of total U.S. energy consumption was consumed in residential and commercial buildings alone! Have a listen and forever change the way you see existing buildings. Plus, we start the speech with not one but *four* party facts! The holidays indeed came early.

If you want to see the slides we used during the keynote or want to follow along with them while you listen, please go to http://sustainabilitydefined.com/greencon-keynote.

Sure the facts and figures we discuss on the show are helpful, but a photograph or painting that emotionally touches someone can have just as big of an impact - or even more!

Plus, we give you five green holiday gift ideas in time for festivus and other year-end festivities.

SustainabilityDefined is the podcast that seeks to define sustainability, one concept (and bad joke) at a time. Hosted by Jay Siegel and Scott Breen.

Each episode focuses on a single topic that helps push sustainability forward. We explain each topic with the help of an experienced pro, place it within our organizational tree, and help our listeners define what exactly sustainability is, episode by episode.

We have divided our organizational tree into the following seven sectors:

Energy

Cities

Natural Environment

Transportation

Business

Policy

Social

Each episode is categorized under one of our sectors and visually depicted within our organizational tree. The more episodes we complete, the more the tree will visually define what exactly sustainability means.

Ughhh! Just when you think your company's greenhouse gas emissions are under control, you remember those pesky little things called Scope 3 Emissions – all the *indirect* emissions that don't even come from the energy you use. Turns out, your supply chain carries massive amounts of emissions that are basically embedded in your product!

How do you tackle this, you ask? You engage all of your suppliers and motivate them to cut back their emissions, which is exactly what Walmart's Project Gigaton aims to do. In spearheading this pioneering project, Walmart is asking its suppliers to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by one gigaton – the equivalent to taking more than 211 million passenger vehicles off of U.S. roads for an entire year. Zach Freeze, Senior Director of Strategic Initiatives at Walmart, joins us to explain how they plan to do it.

This episode is sponsored by Walmart. Want to share your thoughts on how you think it went? Reach out! You can find us at hosts@sustainabilitydefined.com.

Ahhh, plastics. Ever heard of 'em? Many thanks to one of our listeners for suggesting we cover this topic. As such a huge issue, we think it deserves TWO interviews! Our guests--Andrew Almack, who works leads Plastics for Change in India to increase plastic recycling via the informal economy, and Monique Oxender, Chief Sustainability Officer at Keurig Green Mountain who has been working on the recyclability of those K-Cups we're sure many of you enjoy--provide us with diverse and interesting insights on plastics. After listening you'll never look at plastic - or that confusing number inside the recycling logo - the same way again.
