Sascha Nick


Founder & CEO at CO2-monitor & Researcher, Laboratory of Environmental and Urban Economics EPFL

Social & Environmental Impact

After 15 years in tech leadership as a serial entrepreneur, starting four companies including CO2-monitor, I returned to academia, researching Societal Transition Pathways at EPFL and teaching at Business School Lausanne and UNIL.
As a proud father of two, an active outdoors sportsman, and passionate about nature and discovering humans and their achievements, I was naturally attracted to sustainability.
There is so much beauty, resilience, and mystery in life that continuing to run after money and material growth is the ultimate tragedy of humanity. Our obsolete system, efficiently transforming the biosphere into waste, needs urgent replacement by a much better, inclusive society, cherishing life in all its forms, enabling human flourishing, starting with science, the arts, and human relationships.
Please join me in building this world.
