Jos Tio charges his electric rental boats 1400 times a year with his own home-produced "green" energy.

The Frisian entrepreneur is a prime example of sustainability in the year 2010 and there's nothing about him that reminds you of the traditional tree-hugging environmentalist.

Of course Mr Tio likes being eco-friendly and being independent from energy companies, but above all his new specially-built office building-cum-wharf saves him so much in energy costs that his extra investments are really going to pay off.

Making money by being sustainable, that’s the point.
