"I always wanted to travel, meet different people, learn different languages, see how different cultures react and how they cooperate. Those international experiences shaped who I am.
Chief Scientist at Fortescue Metals Group Ltd
Bartlomiej (Bart) Kolodziejczyk is a casually confident international innovator, engineer and advisor who brings together many diverse interests to create a better environment and future.
He was awarded the 2020 Advance Award for Sustainability for his work in creating hydrogen from solar energy and water and has also been named MIT’s Innovator Under 35 and World Energy Council’s Future Leader. He is the founder of two not-for-profits – Scientists in Residence as well as the Annual Indigenous Sustainability Forum, which showcases Indigenous communities’ employment of highly effective, nature-based, sustainability practices.
It is this connection between sustainability and community that best sums up Bart’s focus on bringing about change at a more significant level. He does this in an advising capacity with intergovernmental organisations such as the United Nations (UN), The Group of Twenty (G20), North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO), Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), broadly across the European Union (EU) and more, on science, technology, sustainability, innovation and policy.
He is currently the Chief Scientist at Fortescue Metals Group Ltd and is helping steer the company towards a new focus on renewable energy – particularly green iron and steel but also green hydrogen, and green ammonia.
