“Green 2.0 takes pleasure in congratulating Rhea Suh on breaking the “green ceiling” with her appointment as President of the Natural Resources Defense Council. The Diversity in Environmental Institutions report commissioned by Green 2.0 highlighted the deep diversity challenges, especially within the executive leadership, of the mainstream environmental movement. Today, we celebrate NRDC’s decision to hire a leader who has demonstrated that being a champion for the environment includes being a champion for diversity.”

– Robert Raben, Founder & President, The Raben Group and Founder, Green 2.0
