Simon Galbraith runs a twenty-year old software company called Redgate. I had the good fortune to work for Redgate, and directly with Simon, for a number of years. I don’t say “good fortune” lightly because Redgate was, and by all accounts still is, a great place to work. A lot of care is taken to provide genuine customer value and a safe and fulfilling environment for employees.
Unsurprisingly though, climate and sustainability haven’t featured highly on the company’s priority list. So I wanted to ask Simon why.
Simon is very direct in his views, which don’t always chime with mine or the mainstream climate views. But to me that’s all the more important in my journey to understand how tech can help with the climate emergency.
