Environmental Entrepreneurs or E2 is a national community of business professionals who work towards developing economically beneficial solutions to top priority environmental issues. Specifically E2's diverse membership of about 850 nationally works in tandem with the Natural Resources Defense Council, lending the voices of experience needed to advance sound environmental policy based on the economic merits.
E2's bottom line: It is not business versus the environment. It is business and the environment.
The synergies between E2 and our region's The New Community Coalition are obvious: both organizations recognize that quality interactions among members of a community are key to identifying, coordinating, and implementing sustainable projects that secure our future locally, regionally, and nationally.
E2's Rocky Mountain chapter is relatively green – in the sense of "new." The nascent organization's coming out party is February 11, 7 – 9 p.m. in Denver.
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. is the keynote speaker. Ned Farquhar of the NRDC, Energy and Climate Advocate, is on hand to narrow the focus to what is happening at a Federal level that affects Colorado and the West.
Entrepreneur/investor/conservationist Andrew Currie is the chapter leader. Click the "play" button on his podcast to learn more about why he became involved, E2's work, and the benefits of attending the gathering.
