The Climate Policy Program focuses on designing and implementing a solution to climate change by aggregating the action of state and local governments and sub national governments from abroad.
"Guiding governments, businesses, non-profits, and communities towards a more sustainable future."
Seventh Generation Advisors puts into modern practice the ancient Native American philosophy that the decisions we make today should result in a sustainable world seven generations into the future. Ensuring that decisions being made about our energy, water, and natural resources are sustainable is central to this belief and to our mission.
