Since the Biden-Harris administration entered office earlier this year, the United States has seen renewed vigor for climate action at the federal level. That federal action has been matched with an urgency to promote bold, increased global efforts for climate as well, which the Biden-Harris administration emphasized while hosting the Leaders Summit on Climate in April. Strong federal leadership on climate that prioritizes clean energy and energy-related economic development policies is encouraging to Fresh Energy, largely because it sets the tone for both local and international climate cooperation.
As we round out the first half of summer, Fresh Energy is celebrating two new additions to our team. Our bold new strategic framework has continued to serve as a powerful guide as Fresh Energy leadership have filled the roles of staff who have moved on to new opportunities and created entirely new positions that will aid us as we continue pursuing our mission to achieve equitable carbon-neutral economies. We’re thrilled to have Mike and Joe on the team!
