Charged by our classmates with designing the sustainability strategy for the 5th and 25th Reunions, we decided to combine our efforts to maximize the positive impact.  We also collaborated closely with Princeton’s Office of Sustainability and student EcoReps to design and implement solutions.

Professional role and organization:
I'm the co-founder of Tuckerman & Co, which I started while in business school. Tuckerman is a mission-driven clothing company and our first product is a collection of dress shirts that are made from 100% organic cotton, European fabrics, and sewn here in New England where I live.

In 2013, we worked as consultants for a think tank exploring opportunities for scaling up the deployment of solar microgrids in India. Our research took us to the field, where we realized that the off-grid rural villages we visited were sometimes in a better position to access solar power than households in our own country. Upon returning to the U.S., we committed to change this. Steve first uncovered the emergence of community shared solar and Steph proposed leveraging the team's community organizing experience to build and offer shared solar at local institutions.
