Why I Joined the Greenpeace Board 2.0


Greenpeace is one of the best known environmental groups in America, and even better known around the world. They fall roughly left of center in the spectrum of environmental organizations, right about where I do. They combine careful and thoughtfully researched work with bold actions that capture our imagination and spirit.

At 35, they haven’t entirely lost their adolescence but are at the same time a fully responsible adult. They are led by a real visionary, John Passacantando, who believes in the same possibilities I do, and is willing to do what ever it takes the make the world a just and sustainable place for generations to come. Just the kind of guy I like to hang out with.

Greenpeace is truly an international organization with offices in more than 30 countries. That global perspective is critical to developing solutions in a world where we are increasing interdependent.
