From 2008 through 2010, I served as Executive Director of the Center for Resource Solutions, a San Francisco-based 501 (c) (3) nonprofit environmental group. CRS is internationally known for the Green-e Energy and Climate certification programs that apply stringent standards to the sales of renewable energy products and carbon offsets.
During this time the Green-e Energy market continued to show double-digit growth each year, and the Green-e logo was featured on hundreds of consumer products to show their makers' commitment to clean energy.
CRS is also very active in policy advocacy, and manages the China Sustainable Energy Program on behalf of the Regulatory Assistance Project and the ClimateWorks Foundation.
In my role as Executive Director, I was responsible for overseeing these programs, and was active in writing, researching markets, and responding to legislative and regulatory proposals.
I also kept a busy public speaking schedule, representing CRS and the broader environmental community at conferences and seminars.
