The work of the World Business Academy is essential to a sustainable future. They educate business leaders and individuals like myself about the importance of developing green, clean energy alternatives and they actually know how to DO IT! Their SBR3 campaign, Santa Barbara Reliable Resilient Renewable is testimony to their dedication to powering the future in a safe, clean, sustainable way. I am proud to be a supporter of World Business Academy and benefit from my association with them.

As a parent and grandparent I am deeply concerned about the world my family will live in 10, 20, and 30 years from now. The work that the World Business Academy is doing gives me hope.
We need the money and expertise of business leaders (along with groups of activists) to make the changes that will save our planet. Rinaldo Brutoco, Matt Renner, and the other staff and fellows, are deeply dedicated to do what they can to address the drastic shifts that are occurring from climate change.
When I listen to the radio show they offer, I always learn so much and realize that it's extremely challenging to get reliable information and insight from the main-stream media.
Rinaldo puts his heart and soul into the WBA, and I feel that it's up to us to let folks know about the unique work that's being doing. Tell others about their mission—to inspire business to assume responsibility for the whole of society. It's up to us to do what we can to support their vital work.

The climate is changing - we feel it everyday. Changes need to be made in our personal lives and in the lives of businesses who use natural resources and sometimes abuse them. If factories and power plants and new sources of power can all be required to act in a responsible manner and find the advantage in operating in a clean and healthy manner, the necessary changes will come faster. There has to be a clear benefit to all parties to get some momentum going. My impression of the World Business Academy is that this org is educating both businesses and the public about where the dangers lay, what viable realistic measures can be taken, and what needs to change so that our society will have a chance to survive.
I like it that this org bases it's message for change on scientific facts and thorough investigations into the options available in new power and water sources as well as working to close current menaces like the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant that is sitting on several fault lines and contributing to higher cancer rates in the area around the plant.. The World Business Academy understands the urgency of the problems in California and the world and is the first org I know of that is acting on all fronts at once - through legislation, referendums, education, and public forums. The meetings give me some hope for the future of our planet. I am inspired to help and make changes in my own life. Tana

The undeniable truth around climate concerns should have every single person on this planet pushing to change the direction we have been heading. One organization, founded on the idea that all businesses (and individuals) have a moral, environmental and social responsibility of putting the well-being of the planet senior to profit and irresponsible practices, is the World Business Academy. One of the major ongoing projects is the “Safe Energy Project;” that has a focus on ridding the state of California of nuclear energy and replacing with 100% renewable resources. I invite everyone interested in the above to join this group and support “an idea whose time has come,” and create a massive shift in the thinking and future of this amazing planet we are here to protect and enjoy.

I learned about the World Business Academy in December 2013 when this "think tank" of 28 years approached the public to gain a broad base of supporters in order to accomplish their most recent and very important goals: "Close the last remaining nuclear power plant in California and get California off fossil fuels within ten years."
I was so taken by the high level of ethical and intellectual pursuits of the various members of this academy (90 +- Fellows) and their illustrious careers. Every time I heard a name mentioned or an event the WBA's founder, Rinaldo Bruteco, was involved in I did due-diligence and each time discovered this is an organization which 'walks the talk' and is here to make a positive difference for the greater good.
I have a family charitable foundation and work with 50-60 NGOs for the past eight years though my experience with non-profits began decades ago. I couldn't be more impressed than I am with WBA.
