Samson Szeto, communications program coordinator of LightWorks at Arizona State University, has been named to the 2017 GreenBiz 30 under 30 list. GreenBiz’s 30 under 30 honors young corporate sustainability professionals who strive to make an impact in their workplace and in the world, and Szeto’s work is doing just that. 

Szeto, who graduated from ASU’s School of Sustainability in 2013, was nominated by his supervisor, Travis Johnson, project and business development manager at LightWorks. He was recognized for his work on several renewable energy projects, including the NEPTUNE project, and his involvement with carbon capture technology. 

The NEPTUNE project, a joint venture with the US Navy and six other universities, trains veterans for careers in the energy sector. Samson’s work with capture capture technology involves creating strategic partnerships that unite corporations with ASU researchers working to halt climate change.

"Samson is passionate about driving innovation and sustainability into businesses and society," Johnson said. "I’m proud of Samson for being honored with the 30 Under 30 award, and I am sure he will continue changing the world."
