Joining E2 is the most effective way to stay informed about cutting-edge environmental issues, leverage your professional network, and use your skills to influence important environmental policy issues.
Environmental Entrepreneurs (E2) is a national community of business leaders who promote sound environmental policy that builds economic prosperity.
We provide an independent, nonpartisan resource for understanding the business perspective on environmental issues. Working with business, environmental and non-traditional allies, E2 helps shape state and national policy that’s good for the economy and the environment.
Our MissionTo create a platform for independent business leaders to promote environmentally sustainable economic growth.
Who We AreE2 members come from a broad business base, ranging from clean energy and clean tech to real estate and finance, and beyond. Our members have founded, financed or otherwise developed more than 1,400 companies that have created over 500,000 jobs, and manage nearly $90 billion in venture and private equity capital that will flow into new companies.
Business leaders join E2 as individuals who believe there is value in bringing a reasoned, economically based approach to addressing environmental issues. They contribute their unique perspectives, based on experience in industries that have seen economic growth paired with environmentally sustainable practices and policies. Together, they are working to promote a more sustainable economy, not just the interest of any one business or industry.
E2 leadership is drawn from our membership: our founders and Chapter Directors are business people who serve in a volunteer capacity.
What We Do E2 provides a time-efficient way for business leaders to leverage their professional experience and networks to influence policy and shape the debate around environmental and sustainability issues. E2 keeps its members informed on critical issues, identifies key players in the debate and highlights actions that members can take to make a difference. We then organize specific initiatives that members can engage in, consistent with their time, interest and expertise: position statements, visits to legislators and administrators, letters and op-eds, press briefings and radio tours.
|“E2 plays a critical role in demonstrating that smart business thinking can help solve environmental and energy issues, while spurring investment, innovation, job creation, and economic growth.” |
