There are four divisions of greentomato: partnerships, education, intellectual property and an investment vehicle.

PARTNERSHIPS explores and develops projects with appropriate companies, individuals and other entities, with a view to generating a profit. This is the point of contact for parties interested either in collaborating with existing brand entities (greentomatocars franchises, strategic alliances, sponsorship etc.), or proposing new ideas that resonate with the brand’s values. EDUCATION exists to build the greentomato brand through generating, nurturing, developing and communicating ideas that share greentomato values and are not-for-profit. These ideas may or may not be part of greentomato. The entity hosts a think tank, forums and debates (on and off-line), runs education programmes and events (including fund-raising) manages newsletters, blogs and is a hub for a community of like-minded people and companies. The education entity is very active online. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY owns greentomato’s IP and executes transactions relating to the IP. IP’s principal activity is granting licenses to the operating companies or partners (e.g. franchises or other licenses). INVESTMENT VEHICLE : owns the operating companies, raises and administers financing for new business ventures and partnerships, and generates shareholder information. Relevant transactions are evaluated by the education and partnerships divisions and presented to the holding board for approval before being passed to the investment vehicle for execution.

Climate change is caused by increased solar activity, not humans.


Truth: The sun provides almost all the energy in the earth’s climate, so it clearly has a strong influence on the climate. Prior to 1960’s changes in solar activity and global climate were shown to be strongly proportional.

However, in the past 35 years, studies have shown solar activity to be diminishing, whilst the climate has shown a steady warming trend. This indicates that any recent change in global warming must be attributable to a different source. In fact, it is likely that a decline in solar activity is having a slowing (negative) effect on global temperature rise. Conversely, the warming trend over the past 35 years is directly proportional to recent rises in carbon dioxide emissions.
