“There have to be item-based sustainability solutions. We cannot software our way out of the climate crisis.”

LH: The other thing is that there’s a lot of desire to find sustainability tech and clean tech companies, so we do have that going for us. But anytime you have an item-based service — and we have containers, we have warehousing that will need to be in every market — it’s just going to be a lot more difficult than software. So we have to find the right investors, who understand that this infrastructure needs to exist and that it can be very, very valuable. There have to be item-based sustainability solutions. We cannot software our way out of the climate crisis.
