Earth Day 2023: Kitu’s Investment in Our Planet


“What Kitu is really about is helping to enable eMobility, electrification of the home, and decarbonization.” – Rick Kornfeld, President & CEO.


First celebrated in 1970, Earth Day has flourished into a powerful global movement. The annual event mobilizes individuals in a collective effort to tackle urgent environmental challenges and drive meaningful action towards a more sustainable future. 

Each year, Earth Day has a different theme to focus attention on a particular environmental issue. The theme for 2023 is "Invest in Our Planet,” which aims to encourage individuals, businesses, and governments to invest in sustainable solutions that help protect our planet and create a healthier future for all.

The need for such investments is more pressing than ever before. Climate change, deforestation, pollution, and other environmental issues threaten the health of our planet and our own well-being. To combat these challenges, we need to take action and invest in sustainable solutions that reduce our environmental impact.

Kitu is helping mitigate climate change and reduce greenhouse gases by supporting the transformation of the transportation industry and the electric grid. We are “helping to enable eMobility, electrification of the home, and decarbonization. The way that we do that… involves a change in the way electricity is generated or consumed,” according to President and CEO Rick Kornfeld. As the demand for electricity from more renewable sources grows, the development of smart grid technology is increasing to allow for more efficient distribution and the incorporation of more renewable energy sources. By transitioning from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources like wind and solar power, electrification can significantly reduce carbon emissions. 

Investing in our planet doesn't just benefit the environment. It can also create new opportunities for innovation and economic growth. By investing in sustainable technologies and practices, we can create new jobs and industries that help build a more sustainable future. 

This Earth Day, let's commit to investing in our planet. By working together, we can create a healthier, more sustainable future for all.
