Biography

Jonathan Wege is acting Vice President of
the Wege Foundation
, a private philanthropic
organization that has worked for more than 40
years to advance principles of environmental
stewardship and sustainability. Jonathan is an
early member of the Clinton Global Initiative
and a founding member on the business
council for the H. John Heinz III Center for
Science, Economics and the Environment. He
serves on the Board of Directors for Nextek
Power Systems, Inc. He also sits on the
board of and supports numerous non-profit
organizations that are working on sustainability
and environmental issues, including China-
U.S. Center for Sustainable Development,
GreenBlue and Circle of Blue.
Jonathan met Tom Kiser through their mutual work at the Heinz Center where
they found common ground in their visions for a sustainable future. Jonathan was
instrumental in bringing Kiser’s expertise to the Wege Foundation’s pilot project,
the Economicology Sustainable Strategy for Colleges and Universities. This pilot
program was launched to help enable colleges and universities to define and
implement practical steps to achieve a transformation in energy use on campuses
as well as create curricula designed to give upcoming generations the knowledge
and skills to take on big environmental problems using Economicology principles.
In 2010 Jonathan and Tom teamed up to create Powerdigm as a platform for
taking PSI’s industry leading energy efficiency innovations to scale in multiple
market sectors. For Jonathan this platform is Economicology in practice – it is
energy responsibility combined with practical financial models which, taken
to scale together, have the potential to make a large contribution to the global
project of reducing carbon footprints.
