June 9, 2020, Washington, DC—Green America’s Center for Sustainability Solutions is proud to announce and welcome Courtney Pineau as Senior Director of Climate & Agriculture Networks.
Pineau will lead the Center's Climate and Agriculture programs including the Regenerative Supply Working Group, the Carbon Farming Innovation Network, and the Soil Carbon Index (SCI)—an outcomes-based, verifiable standard to improve soil health and build soil carbon. These networks, comprised of stakeholders across the supply chain, seek to collaboratively reverse the climate crisis by restoring soil health and eco-system biodiversity, and rebuild farm, farm worker, and rural community economic sustainability.
Courtney joins the team from the Non-GMO Project, located in Bellingham, WA, where she served as the Associate Director for seven years. In this capacity, she helped lead the growth of the organization from infancy to its current position as one of the leading food certifications in North America. Pineau’s career has focused on supporting mission-driven organizations in scaling their impact through story, outreach, and strategic partnerships.
“It is a great honor to join Green America in their critical work of bringing stakeholders together to find solutions that rapidly scale regenerative agriculture—one of our most powerful tools in reversing climate change and ensuring the resilience of our food system.”
Courtney holds an BA degree from Western Washington University and an MBA in Sustainable Business from the Bainbridge Graduate Institute (now Presidio Graduate School).
"The work of the Center's Climate and Agriculture Programs is a source of profound hope for reversing the climate arrow, protecting vulnerable people and our magnificent planet," said Alisa Gravitz, Green America's CEO. "We are thrilled that Courtney has joined our team to lead this work so crucial for the future of the human family."
