Earth Week: American U. launches William K. Reilly Fund for Environmental Governance & Leadership
Date:4/26/2013

ly pointed out the challenges of communicating with voting blocs today, which in turn lead many members of Congress to vote the sentiments of their district. In particular, Reilly emphasized, "the importance of language and particularly listening and understanding the other side rather than to trivialize or patronize other points of view." As an example, Reilly explained how some constituencies respond more favorably to environmental concerns when described in terms of theological underpinnings stressing "stewardship" and "care of creation" rather than purely scientific arguments.

In his conclusion Reilly highlighted his American University campus tour and the noticeable progress its making through the use of solar panels and other technology to reach 100 percent carbon neutrality by 2020. "It's really impressive and American University is a very appropriate place to honor environmental leadership," said Reilly.

Reilly is currently a senior advisor to TPG Capital, LP, an international investment partnership. Reilly's career highlights include having served as EPA Administrator (1989-93), president of World Wildlife Fund (1985-89), president of The Conservation Foundation (1973-89), founding partner of the water sector investment fund Aqua International (1998-2010), and co-chair to President Obama's National Commission on the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and Offshore Drilling.
