About meAmy Larkin is the author of Environmental Debt: The Hidden Costs of a Changing Global Economy. In the book, Larkin connects the environmental and financial crises -- both causes and solutions. Amy is an award-winning entrepreneur and environmental activist who has launched cultural institutions, co-founded one of the first affinity-marketing businesses, and was involved with Greenpeace for 30 years -- as a Board member, advisor, and from 2005 -– 2011, Director of Greenpeace Solutions.

Environmental Debt has received glowing reviews from a cross section of major media and garnered attention through Amazon (Editors’ list for Best Business Books of June), and Vanity Fair (July Hot Type). Amy has also recently appeared at Bloomberg Radio, the Commonwealth Club of San Francisco, the Leonard Lopate Show on WNYC (NYC’s NPR Affiliate) and AtGoogleTalks. She is also a regular contributor to Huffington Post and CSRwire.

In 2010, Greenpeace Solutions worked with the Consumer Goods Forum, a consortium of 400 companies with $3 trillion in revenue, to eliminate HFCs from all new equipment starting in 2015. This industry transformation will eliminate 1-2 percent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions over the next 30 years. This work won the prestigious 2011 Roy Award from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government for public/private partnerships that protect natural resources.

Through her consulting business, she has recently worked with the Agricultural Sustainability Institute of UC/Davis, Greenpeace International, the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation and the Consumer Goods Forum.

Amy currently serves as the Chair of the Advisory Board of BiomimicryNYC and is also the Chair of the Board of the ARChive of Contemporary Music, the largest collection of contemporary music in the world.
