Advancing Investment in Carbon Removal with Travis Caddy, Business Development Director at Evident | Season Seven, Episode One

Welcome to Season Seven of Conversations in Cleantech! 

From inspiring stories and words of wisdom, to financial foresight and investment insights: in this season, you can expect to learn all about the people and companies who are propelling us towards a greener tomorrow, with a spotlight on investing in a cleaner planet.

In this podcast episode hosted by Alexa Mangeant, Senior Consultant at Brightsmith, we are delighted to be kicking off season seven with Travis Caddy, Business Development Director at Evident.


At the time of recording, Travis had just returned from COP28, which shapes much of the dialogue and discussion in the episode - from Travis’ motivations for attending COP28, to the hopes (such as the Carbon Removal Challenge) and the limitations (such as not driving enough global emissions reductions) seen at COP28.


You can also expect to glean insights into the carbon removal market, including a conversation around who the bill for carbon removal sits with, why investment should be a bigger priority, who benefits the most business-wise as well as diving into some of the biggest industry challenges and opportunities.


Finally, Travis also shares his journey into cleantech, the extraordinary trajectory Evident has been on to go from a small team of 6 people to nearly 100 and the importance of pursuing emerging areas for growth and revenue opportunities.


Safe to say, this episode is a sensational start to season seven!
