The French Minister of Ecology visits Verteego at Pollutec

What a terrific Christmas gift! Among the 1400 booths of environmental technologies trade show Pollutec 2011 in Paris, the French Ecology Minister Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet, a former Digital Economy Minister, picked up Verteego as the Greentech + Software company to visit.

Verteego’s cofounder and general manager Rupert Schiessl and Mrs Kosciusko-Morizet has a fruitfuil fireside chat about the French know-how in green software, financing digital green startups, enforcing the REACH regulation, putting a price tag on carbon emissions,… which hopefully is a sign that the French government is determined to help green software giants blossom from France and into Europe, North America, the BRICs and the World.
