Our Opportunity

The DEPLOY/US community recognizes that a transition to clean energy is necessary for our security, economy, and well-being. Leaders in diverse sectors and across the political spectrum agree.

commander.gifThe U.S. Military warns that climate change "poses immediate risks to U.S. national security."* Business leaders and investors worry about supply chain and investment risks. Public health leaders cite a "potentially catastrophic risk to human health."*  Religious leaders from all major traditions, including Pope Francis, say we have a moral responsibility to act.

The good news is that we can grow the economy and address these risks at the same time. By investing in sustainable technologies and business models, we can stimulate innovation and create jobs. Over 1,000 U.S. businesses agree: "Tackling climate change is one of America's best economic opportunities of the twenty-first century."*

Our Role


DEPLOY/US plays a unique role in the climate and energy landscape. We connect and empower leaders and concerned citizens across the political spectrum who share a goal of pragmatic, pro-growth solutions. We illuminate new opportunities and provide our growing community with high-impact pathways to action. 

Our combination of project leadership and direct support to key sectors and organizations enables us to reach new constituencies, build strategic alliances, and accelerate work to forge solutions.

New Constituencies  The activism that propelled climate change to international attention cannot get us over the finish line alone. Climate is more than an environmental issue. It is also a national security, economic, public health, and moral issue. DEPLOY/US brings extensive experience and an exceptional network at both national and state levels to engage constituencies across the political spectrum in putting forward and implementing innovative solutions.  

Strategic Alliances  Sustainable solutions require new networks, partnerships, and alliances across organizational, sectoral, and political lines. DEPLOY/US brings unique expertise in strategic alliances, unexpected partnerships, and collaboration. We work with a wide range of organizations in the nonprofit, private, and public sectors, helping them build new relationships, collaborate efficiently, and communicate with key constituencies.
