Glen Low

Principal, Blu Skye

Simultaneous action around just the right people is key. It’s not everyone, it’s not all seven billion, one day nine billion acting in concert. It’s actually a few thousand. And then if you pinpoint the problem, pinpoint the solution and get the right people to perform, you can actually change it.

Glen Low understands that the marriage of business rationale and moral values creates lasting change. As a Senior Advisor at Blu Skye, Low helps companies establish a profitable, sustainable advantage. Low has 20 years of corporate consulting and management experience and is the former head of Blu Skye’s San Francisco office, where he helped lead the overall operations of the firm. During that time he worked with dozens of senior corporate executives to create, design and implement sustainability strategies.

Prior to Blu Skye, Low was a Principal at Bain & Company. He has a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from UC Berkeley where he was an Alumni scholar. Glen also has an MBA from the University of Chicago, Booth School of Business.

Glen Low's Simple Shift

My water footprint is a quarter of the national average. My trash footprint is three more times recycling and compost than it is landfill. I fly constantly, but I rationalize that because I'm flying out there to convince the world's most profitable executives that they should do more. I'd like to think that energy balance in my activities [means] my carbon footprint is actually positive.
