Top 10 Wealthiest Men in Green

I’ve been wondering of who are those people  making their initiatives in GREEN. I made few research and net browsing then suddenly i got this information. Here is the Top 10 Wealthiest Men in Green in 2009. Take note, with this kind of industry, it might not be affected by the recession.

Let’s start with Rank 10, there are two person for this slot.

Larry Page Men in GreenLarry Page
Ranking: 10
Worth  :  £7.5bn
Green investment: Green energy
Google co-founder Larry Page is an investor with co-founder Sergey Brin in Tesla Motors, which developed the Tesla Roadster electric vehicle. Some £42m has been invested by Google to develop solar and wind power, plug-in hybrid cars and other ideas. One of the aims is to make “RE less than C” — renewable energy cheaper than coal. An alliance with the industrial giant General Electric was announced last September to make this happen.

Sergey Brin Men in GreenSergey Brin
Ranking: 10
Worth  :  £7.5bn
Green investment: Green energy
Google co-founder Sergey Brin’s huge wealth has been deployed in a variety of green initiatives. Like business partner Larry Page, Brin is a top investor in Tesla Motors, which developed the Tesla Roadster, a battery electric vehicle with a range of 220 miles. Google, with huge financial resources, is also going green. Last August it invested $10m to produce electricity from underground heat. The move is part of Google’s effort to pump hundreds of millions of dollars into green energy sources, starting with solar, thermal, high-altitude wind power and now, geothermal energy. Google’s shares have been hit hard in the recent stock- market turmoil but Brin is still worth at least £7.5 billion.
