Juliet Davenport – Good Energy. Running a business along Doughnut Economics lines
Juliet Davenport is founder and CEO of Good Energy – a business that’s successfully subverting the conventional giants of the energy sector. Juliet became frustrated by the lack of change in an industry she knew to be so central to our culture of carbon emissions. She took matters into her own hands and founded Good Energy in 1997. By playing a maverick role in a very conventionally-run industry, Juliet has been part of driving a bigger change among energy’s multinational players.
