Timur DelahayeWith a PhD in astrophysics, when it comes to science, Timur knows what he’s talking about. In fact, he could explain it in any of the six languages he is fluent in or refer you to one of the 30 scientific articles he’s written. His love of research and ability to bring people together led to a job as a research manager. There, he set up partnerships with academic bodies, industry and local government. In the process, Timur noticed something. While many companies are getting better and better at diminishing their greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption, a lot can still be done on an individual level – the employee. Timur channelled his passion for the environment and knowledge into a business idea: JobFootprint. JobFootprint empowers employees to diminish their work-related environmental impact by showing people which of their daily work activities have the biggest effect. Timur wants to do this using information already available to both employer and employee – plane tickets, printer usage, etc. Timur is now taking part of the Care of Business program, working on turning his business idea into reality.
