Catapult Design at Clinton Global Initiative

Clinton Global Intitiative kicks off this Sunday, September 23rd in New York with an opening plenary session on “Designing for Impact” with former President Bill Clinton.

Following the session, Catapult CEO, Heather Fleming, will facilitate a Design Lab asking “How can we provide reliable and safe energy to those in need?” with D-Rev’s Krista Donaldson. There are 1.6 billion people around the world living without power and electricity and nearly 2 million people dying prematurely each year from indoor air pollution caused by solid fuel use in the home. Catapult is pleased to lead the discussion on new innovations in  products, technology, business models and financing that will bring an end to this global inbalance.

To date, CGI member have made more than 2,100 Commitments to Action, which are already improving the lives of nearly 400 million people in more than 180 countries.  When fully funded and implemented, these commitments will be valued at $69.2 billion.
