Collaboration between the public and private sector is crucial if we’re going to develop new and innovative solutions and technologies to protect our environment for future generations.E2’s collaborative approach and tireless advocacy for policies and programs that protect our environment and our economy resonates with policy makers as we tackle these broad issues.

Michael Bennet

U.S. Senator, Colorado

We need to harness the potential of our entrepreneurial spirit and our abundant clean energy resources to create a more sustainable future.  E2 is critical to that future, and I look forward to working with its membership to craft clean energy policies that will create jobs, protect our environment and strengthen U.S. competitiveness abroad.

Richard Blumenthal

U.S. Senator, Connecticut

Visiting with E2 has opened new areas of action for pursuing environmental protection combined with entrepreneurial investment.  One such opportunity is clean energy use by our military, which I will continue to advocate as a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, with E2’s valuable support.  I am grateful for E2’s strong leadership and partnership as I fight to preserve our environment and grow the economy, both achievable and vital goals.

Sherrod Campbell Brown

U.S. Senator, Ohio

Finding solutions to curbing climate change will be difficult but having stake- holders, like E2, involved will help us make future policy a reality that protects the environment, public health, and the economy.

Ron Wyden

U.S. Senator, Oregon

The E2 message that a clean, healthy environment is good for our economy and our quality of life is now resonating powerfully in the halls of Congress. One Senator after another has mentioned to me how much they learned at E2’s recent briefing for them on key environmental issues.

Edward J. Markey

U.S. Senator, Massachusetts

E2 is a very effective advocate for a cleaner planet because its members are changing the way America uses energy and they know what they are talking about.

Environmental Entrepreneurs brings a vital business voice to discussions in policy and politics about our transition to a clean energy economy. I always look to E2 for their opinion on issues concerning energy, water and business in Colorado when weighing legislative decisions. E2 plays a critical role in making smart decisions about our future here in Colorado.

Pamela Resor

E2 played a huge role in the State’s legislative accomplishments this year. I’m not sure we could have done it without you.

What E2 Members, Partners and Friends are Saying

Lt. General John Castellaw USMC (Ret)

President, Crockett Policy Institute

On the 2012 E2 DC Delegate Trip: “The E2 Hill engagement carried the message to key legislators and staffers that clean energy is a priority for our military because it is a matter of America’s national security. Having businessmen and military professionals standing together sends a strong message.

Chris Dennett

Oregon E2 Chapter Director

On the 2011 E2 Forum: "I can’t believe how much I learned and how energized I am right now. After learning about how our government process works (a sobering experience), then exercising and engaging my civic duty, I can now bring back what I learned to our local chapter to organize others. This is truly a scalable model that will help E2 members be results-driven and effective advocates for our environment."
