Rob Pratt to Head Climate Change Initiative

The Henry P. Kendall Foundation announced that Robert L. Pratt, a renewable energy entrepreneur, will be joining the Foundation as Senior Vice President to head up a climate change initiative. Pratt, who was Director of the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative (MTC) Renewable Energy Trust over the past three years, brings to his new role 30 years of experience in renewable energy and energy efficiency in the private sector, in state and federal government, and in various nonprofit organizations. The Henry P. Kendall Foundation was established in 1957, and since the early 1970s it has emphasized environmental concerns, supporting land, water and wildlife conservation. With climate change becoming the most profound challenge facing us today, the Foundation has decided to sponsor a New England climate initiative to encourage the adoption of best practices — across all sectors — to demonstrate that reducing greenhouse gas emissions is technically feasible, economically beneficial, politically supportable and replicable in other regions.
