He is one of today's ecological and sustainability thought leaders and will assist the company with one of its core objectives: to demonstrate that Terrestrial Energy is a leading industrial-energy innovator that is addressing the central problems of climate change and energy sustainability."

The company said Heard is recognized internationally as an authority on climate-change mitigation and what corporations can do in this area.
