Blog : Tom Steyer visits Green Alliance

By Sam | Nov 5, 2014 | in

Last Friday, Green Alliance headquarters had a very special visitor!

For those who aren’t familiar, Tom Steyer, billionaire philanthropist and environmental advocate, is the founder of NextGen Climate, an organization that supports candidates who take interest in environmental issues. He is traveling across the country speaking about the importance of environmental legislation, and the importance of people’s votes, especially in the upcoming elections. 

Steyer spoke to a full room of business owners and non-profits. Many of our Green Alliance business partners were there, including but not limited to: Seacoast Energy, Blue Ocean Society, Progressive Asset Management, Newmarket Dental, Great Bay Stewards, Eolian Energy, and more. The discussion ranged from the impending transition to renewable energy as the dominant source of power, to the small steps people can take in their local community to make positive changes for the environment. 

We were so pleased that Mr. Steyer had the time to visit our office and talk to the people who are making a difference in the seacoast - it means that we're really making a difference, and you're helping!
