Over the past 20 years, E2 and its members have led efforts that have helped pass policies at the state and federal level that advance deployment of clean energy and clean transportation; increase funding for clean energy innovation; improve low-carbon farming practices; and protect our air, water and lands — all while also creating jobs and driving economic growth.

The key to long-term success is innovation. In its first 20 years, E2 pioneered creative approaches to advocacy and forged innovative partnerships with influential leaders across the spectrum of business, agriculture, the military, and other parts of our nation’s economy. In the years ahead, E2 will build on these strengths to shape a brighter, cleaner economy and environment.
