Pierre André Senizergues, founder and CEO of Sole Technology, and one of the world’s largest entrepreneurs in the area of skateboarding, is also one of the world’s biggest fans of green living.
Pierre was the primary backer for Leonardo DiCaprio’s global warming epic The 11th Hour. But his dedication doesn’t stop there. His passion for fighting environmental issues also shines through in his business and personal life. Sole Technology’s headquarters may be located in south Orange County, California, but it’s well known for its green features, like as an amazing solar system (616 panels), waterless urinals, water based cement manufacturing and the employment of the first ever sports industry Environmental Affairs Manager.
Pierre vows to continue his participation in environmental issues. He has been in talks with both China and the UN about global warming issues and was recently awarded the Top OC Innovators by the Orange County Register for his active role in environmental practices as well as for the way his company, Sole Technology, is revolutionizing the way they do business.
I just might have to go out, get myself a skateboard and take a few lessons thanks to the inspiration of Monsieur Senizergues. C’est bien!
