Working between sectors and industries, Barney Swan accelerates strategies to reduce our environmental impact- whilst aligning with sustainable development practices. Bridging outdoor stewardship, and conscious business practices, he is on a mission to design a more sustainable future. In 2017 he skied 1000 kilometres over 65 days to the South Pole, surviving using NASA designed solar ice melters, lithium batteries, and biofuel made from waste. The carbon positive journey marked the launch of the ClimateForce challenge, a collabrative mission to ‘clean-up’ 360 million tons of CO2 before the year 2025.
