Preparing to Meet Lawmakers

Melissa and I arrived safe and sound in DC this morning. I’m very much looking forward to heading to Capital Hill tomorrow morning with my colleagues from E2 (Environmental Entrepreneurs).

We are divided up into several groups. My group will include two other green entrepreneurs and a retired General. Our first day will include meetings with nine Senators (or their staff.) Our second day we’ll be meeting with five House Members plus a couple folks from the Administration.

As I was spending the last couple of hours researching the different Senators and Representatives, I find it so amazing the wide variety of “opinions” on economic, environmental and energy issues. Even within parties!

Our goal is to educate on the importance of legislation designed to foster green economic growth, reduce emissions and make our transportation system as efficient and safe as possible. I look forward to the opportunity!

Mr. Krull Goes to Washington

I am looking forward to heading to Washington, DC on April 27th as part of a coalition of environmental-based entrepreneurs meeting with lawmakers and administration officials. The trip is being organized by E2, Environmental Entrepreneurs, a non-partisan community of business leaders who promote sound environmental policy that builds economic prosperity.

Krull & Company has been a member of E2 since early 2014 and has taken an active role in encouraging lawmakers to adopt environmentally responsible policies and laws.

On this trip, we will be focusing on three issues:

  • Supporting clean energy policies and programs in upcoming energy bills and tax reform
  • Supporting and defending the implementation of policies to reduce greenhouse gases in an economically beneficial way (Clean Power Plan)
  • Supporting a new transportation bill that prioritizes innovation, lowers environmental impacts and increases economic efficiency.

What does this mean for you?

All of these issues affect our clients in some way – from renewable energy tax credits to more efficient forms of transportation. They also are relevant to our strategies of investing in sustainable companies and divesting from fossil fuels.

I will keep you up to date on the results.
