Dale Vince launched the world’s first green energy company, owns Devil’s Kitchen, a venture that makes vegan school dinners, and Skydiamond, a firm that creates lab-grown diamonds with renewable energy. 


A former New Age traveller, Dale founded the world’s first green energy company in 1995. That firm, Ecotricity, powers 200,000 homes and businesses with wind and solar energy across the UK, and operates Europe’s first electric vehicle charging network, known as the Electric Highway.

Another of Dale’s ventures is Devil’s Kitchen, a company that makes vegan school dinners. Skydiamond, the lab he created to sustainably produce diamonds, grows the precious stone from scratch using renewable energy.  

A life-long advocate for sustainability, Dale’s work targets energy, transport and food, three sectors which together produce more than three quarters of the world’s carbon emissions.

He is chairman and owner of Forest Green Rovers, “the world’s greenest football club”, according to FIFA. His first book was simply titled: Manifesto. He is Executive Producer of Seaspiracy, a hard-hitting Netflix documentary about the environmental impact of overfishing and our consumption of marine life.

Looking Ahead to International Women’s Day

We were joined by four fantastic speakers to look ahead at International Women’s Day. With the theme of this year’s event being #InspireInclusion, we were lucky enough to hear from four women who have each blazed a trail in their respective fields: CEO of Channel 4, Alex Mahon; the former Australian Prime Minister and Chair of Kings’ Global Institute of Women’s Leadership, Julia Gillard; one of the leading voices in football, Eniola Aluko MBE; and broadcaster and journalist, Samira Ahmed.
