Testimonials

“I love the Energy & Sustainability Leaders Roundtable!  We learn from interesting speakers at each meeting.  The knowledge and keen interest of the members encouraged me to invest in rooftop solar panels for our office building.  We’ve also built raised garden beds for employees to grow vegetables.  This year we started composting our shredded office paper and kitchen food waste with the help of a small grant from DNREC.  Next we are contemplating green stormwater infrastructure upgrades and shoreline stabilization on our property edge along the banks of the Brandywine River.”

“I decided to join Energy and Sustainability Leaders Roundtable because in my job as environmental manager at Bank of America, I look for opportunities to learn about best practices and collaborate with colleagues who perform similar function in other industries. I especially value this organization as it is made up of members from various private, public and not for profit sectors as these individuals share their own unique solutions to issues that we call care about such as recycling, energy conservation or sustainable transportation to name a few. I especially appreciate Andréa’s key role in this organization as a facilitator in bringing great speakers and organizations to the Roundtable and making sure that these meetings not only happen, but they are interesting and productive for each member.”
