Had an interesting conversation today with Barry Matchett of The Environmental Law & Policy Center (elpc.org),
“The Environmental Law & Policy Center is the Midwest’s leading public interest environmental legal advocacy and eco-business innovation organization. We develop and lead successful strategic environmental advocacy campaigns to improve environmental quality and protect our natural heritage. We are public interest environmental entrepreneurs who engage in creative business deal making with diverse interests to put into practice our belief that environmental progress and economic development can be achieved together. ELPC’s multidisciplinary staff of talented and experienced public interest attorneys, environmental business specialists, public policy advocates, and communications specialists brings a strong and effective combination of skills to solve environmental problems and improve the quality of life in our Midwestern communities.”
They are doing great work to find market based solutions to the environmental challenges we all face. We discussed the challenges and opportunities in renewable energy in the Midwest.
I found inspiration in our conversation today – please support organizations/politicians that support this work – it is imperative to creating a sustainable economy.
