SAN FRANCISCO—The Breast Cancer Fund, the leading national organization working to prevent breast cancer by eliminating our exposures to toxic chemicals and radiation linked to the disease, is pleased to announce its partnership with Environmental and Energy Consulting (EEC) – a state lobbying firm that sets the standard for conservation advocacy in California.
“We are thrilled to announce this partnership with EEC,” said Nancy Buermeyer, senior policy strategist at the Breast Cancer Fund. “Working together we can make great strides to protect Californians from toxic chemicals linked to breast cancer.”
California often leads the nation with forward-thinking environmental and toxic chemical management laws that prioritize the long-term health benefits of all Californians. Policies passed in California benefit citizens across the nation because manufacturers making safer products for the state will almost certainly sell those products nationwide. Maintaining a strong presence in Sacramento by working with EEC enables the Breast Cancer Fund to continue to pursue its strategic goal of implementing and promoting a broad-based public policy agenda that reduces and eliminates exposure to toxic chemicals and radiation that contribute to an increased risk of breast cancer.
EEC provides a client-oriented approach to its work and is dedicated to serving all aspects of a client’s needs. The firm was established to set the standard for conservation and clean energy advocacy in California. From strategy and policy guidance, to coalition and association assistance, to agency and legislative advocacy, EEC provides insightful advice and innovative approaches to help an organization achieve its goals. EEC specializes in policy and government relations related to conservation, sustainable agriculture, oceans, recycling, climate change, climate adaptation, renewable transportation, toxics, and clean fuel and energy. The firm’s staff has strong relationships with directors of all the departments in the Natural Resource and Environmental Protection Agencies, staff and members of key policy and budget committees, legislative leadership, the Governor’s advisors, and major stakeholders that work in the area. These relationships help EEC assist organizations with their advocacy strategies to advance important state policy, or develop and then access public funding. To broaden their depth and reach, they have also created a strategic alliance with an initiative campaign, public opinion polling, and media and public relations firm, which EEC drawn upon as needed to provide an even broader range of services.
