BEF is an environmental non profit based in Portland that works with companies to address three big environmental challenges: energy, carbon, and water. BEF looks to use market based solutions such as renewable energy credits, carbon offsets, and water restoration credits to help companies meet their goals of reducing environmental impact.
Of particular interest at SXSWeco this year has been the issue of water. I sat down with Val Fishman, BEF’s VP of corporate partnerships to learn a little but more about how BEF’s various projects are having a positive impact on global water issues and specifically the Colorado River watershed.
Among many corporate partnerships, BEF has also recently helped launch a portal called ChangeTheCourse.us which offers opportunities for individuals to get directly involved in watershed restoration.
