Heroes of the Environment- Dorjee Sun


A recent Illustration of Australian entrepreneur Dorjee Sun for TIME magazine.

"Carbon Conservation grew out of Sun’s concern for the millions of hectares of rain forest destroyed each year in Indonesia. He knew that nonprofits alone weren’t going to stop tropical deforestation, which contributes as much as a quarter of the world’s carbon emissions. Deforestation would only end when it becomes more profitable to keep forests than to turn them into logs or farms. "I love NGOs, but I don’t think they’re the people alone who can change the world," says Sun. "You have to make it a business."
