In November, I joined a stellar team on the Environmental Entrepreneurs (E2) annual mission to Washington, DC. In addition to receiving hands-on advocacy and media training from nationally renowned media experts, we attended high-level briefings with senior government officials on current policy debates, and met with leaders in Congress and the Administration on legislative initiatives including the President’s Clean Power Plan and the extension of the Clean Energy Tax Credits that have fueled wind, solar, and other clean energy development. I met with E2 members from around the country…an inspiring group of entrepreneurs, investors and executives…who work with E2 to advance an environmentally sustainable economy and are moving E2’s strategy forward at the federal
and state levels.
