In 2010, through Greenpeace Solutions, Amy worked with the Consumer Goods Forum, a consortium of 400 companies with $3 trillion in revenue, to eliminate HFCs from all new equipment starting in 2015. This industry transformation will eliminate 1-2 percent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions over the next 30 years. This work won the prestigious 2011 Roy Award from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government for public/private partnerships that protect natural resources.

Working on public policy engagement so that new public policy (national and international) incentivizes businesses to make genuine progress on sectoral environmental initiatives.
Consumer Goods Forum and the Coca-Cola Corporation – 2012
Amy created a Blueprint for the organization’s 2013 Sustainability Work. This blueprint included potential vehicles to create easier and cheaper pathways to transformational changes (including technical know-how) for member corporations. It also included engagement strategies for collaboration using the strengths of myriad civil society organizations.
Sustainable Sourcing Initiative – 2012
The Agricultural Sustainability Institute at University of California’s Sustainability Sourcing Initiative focuses on creating a comprehensive database and metric that is USEFUL for companies looking to move their supply chains into the lowest- impact agriculture possible. The project includes many corporations (Mars, Bunge, Campbell’s, IBM among many others) and civil society organizations including farmer’s cooperatives, Environmental Defense, et al. Amy began this work as an advisor on business issues for the core team and was soon branded as “the Provocateur”… in a good way. Her role was to ask questions that helped the group translate complex scientific and biological issues into usable data and approaches.
