Bill Weihl is the founder and executive director of ClimateVoice, a nonprofit initiative mobilizing the workforce to encourage companies to go “all in” on climate. Bill founded ClimateVoice in February 2020 to address a key missing gap in addressing climate change: the lack of robust business support for public policy that can drive rapid decarbonization. From 2012 to 2018, Bill was director of sustainability at Facebook, where he helped launch the Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance. He previously held the title of Green Energy Czar at Google, where his team pioneered the company’s work to buy clean energy for its data centers and helped found the Climate Savers Computing Initiative with Intel and the World Wildlife Fund.
