David Saltman is an advocate of environmental innovation who has pioneered sustainable business development for over two decades. He served on President Clinton’s task force that developed green procurement guidelines for the federal government, and was a founder of Flexform Technologies, the first natural fiber composites company in America. David was a founding member of CleanTECH San Diego, and has served as executive director of Surfrider Foundation.
Saltman co-founded Málama Composites in 2009. David asserts, “We must transition from petroleum-based products to those derived from bio-based materials. Plants can provide the feedstock for industry without damaging ecosystems, interfering with the human food chain, or contributing to global climate change. Málama joins a number of innovative companies, talented designers and enlightened entrepreneurs in proving that sustainability makes sound economic sense.” Along with his team at Málama, David continues to pursue new possibilities in eco-friendly materials.
David Saltman will be a featured speaker and panelist at Sustainable Solutions, on November 14th, 2012 at UC San Diego.
