Ron Dembo

Dr. Ron Dembo is the Founder and CEO of Zerofootprint. Zerofootprint is a socially responsible enterprise whose mission is to apply technology, design and risk management to the massive reduction of our environmental footprint. Zerofootprint operates both in the for-profit and charitable domains through two entities, Zerofootprint Software and Zerofootprint Foundation using shared technology. The Zerofootprint Foundation was founded in 2005 to engage communities everywhere in the battle against climate change. It pursues causes that uphold values of sustainable development, risk management, research, and advocacy. The Foundation initiatives involve government (Federal, Provincial and Municipal), educators (universities, elementary and middle schools) and other not-for-profit organizations. Geographical and societal barriers do not limit its vision. Zerofootprint came in first place and won Gold in the Climate Change category at the Canadian Environment Awards in 2008. Prior to founding Zerofootprint, Dr. Dembo was the Founder, CEO, and President of Algorithmics Incorporated, growing it from a start-up to the largest enterprise risk-management software company in the world, with offices in fifteen countries and over 70% of the world’s top 100 banks as clients. Algorithmics was consistently voted as one of the top 50 best-managed companies in Canada.
