Who we are
Welcome to our community of leaders working to advance solutions for a sustainable energy system, economy, and world. Join our global action network where we are connecting people in the US and around the world (in over 100 countries) who are passionate about making a difference. We conduct monthly forums, including workshops, where we convene experts in our focus areas including sustainable communities, green economy, and multigenerational leadership. We also help our members connect with one another on opportunities related to employment and business partnering.
We are working to create Sustainable Communities by connecting those who want to DEPLOY sustainable solutions with companies and vendors who can PROVIDE those solutions. Our event in February 2017 at the George Washington University on “Sustainable Solutions for Tomorrow’s Campuses” was an example of this. We convened university sustainability directors and facility managers with companies that were developing innovative solutions in energy and water efficiency, renewable energy, electric cars, etc. We have worked on actions and strategies ranging from consensus building to convening experts on energy systems such as microgrids to reduce greenhouse gases and taking actions to move from a throwaway society to a circular economy.
We work to help connect job seekers with job providers through our annual Green Jobs Forums. We conducted our 4th forum on August 17, 2017. Leaders in Energy has conducted 3 annual events on clean energy finance to bring together those seeking finance with investors and investor entities with financial resources.
Our next Clean Energy Finance event will take place on Thursday, January 18th, from 6-9 pm at WeWork. Our next Green Career Workshop will be held on Wednesday, January 24, from 6-9 pm. See more details on both of these at our Events page.
We recognize clean energy and sustainable leaders who are making an impact across each of the 4 generations in the workplace – Millennial, Gen X, Baby Boomer and World War II through our annual Four Generations Awards events. We conducted our 4th Four Generations Awards and Holiday Event on December 1, 2017 in Crystal City.
We are building a global community of those who care about clean energy and sustainability connecting from around the world. With operations in Metro Washington DC, we’ve built a base that spans most major metropolitan areas and over 100 countries. Click the header to view a global members map.
