Low Carbon Field Notes

Low Carbon Field Notes is a dispatch from me, Dom Potter, on how the future of low carbon business is unfolding. I’ll be picking out the low carbon signals in the noise, highlighting emerging innovations and documenting the journey of what it is like to be building a low carbon startup.

I’m the founder of MadeFrom. Before MadeFrom I was Global Entrepreneur in Residence at IKEA, Professor of Practice in Innovation and Entrepreneurship at The University of Nottingham Business School and an entrepreneur. After five years living in the forest of Sweden I now live on the North West coast of the UK.

We're Focused On Change

We don't document how the world currently exists.
We design the world we need and want, for everyone.

We Believe In Products

How we design products has never been more important.
It's time we saw impact as something we can design for.

We're Designing A New Kind of School

We believe climate literacy is part of the foundation of better businesses and better products.
We believe climate action needs to be collective, intersectional and community-led.
