Mike Hower is Marketing Communications Manager at Carbon Lighthouse. With a background on both sides of the communications podium — as a journalist and strategic communicator — he is committed to helping organizations address climate change through sustainability innovation. Previously, Mike was a project manager at Edelman, where he worked with companies large and small on sustainability and climate change communications and strategy, including HP, The North Face, Dow Building Solutions and SolarReserve. Before that, he was senior writer at GreenBiz, Triple Pundit and Sustainable Brands, covering cleantech, energy, urban sustainability and climate change. During graduate school, Mike served as an Environmental Defense Fund Climate Corps Fellow, working with Pacific Gas & Electric Company to develop a strategic communication and implementation plan for an on-bill energy efficiency finance program. He remains engaged with EDF as a volunteer advocate for progressive climate policy at all levels of government. Mike’s strong sense of urgency for climate action sparked when he left his first corporate job out of college to spend a year volunteering in a poor neighborhood of Bogotá, Colombia — where he witnessed firsthand the link between social and environmental sustainability. Mike’s travels have taken him from the halls of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. to tech offices in Silicon Valley; from the disappearing rainforests of Petén, Guatemala to the slums of Nairobi, Kenya and beyond. Mike holds a Masters in Media & Public Affairs from George Washington University and a Bachelors in Political Science and History from University of California, Davis. His Master’s thesis, “Climate Shocks, ICT, and Policy Resilience in Different Political Systems,” examines the role of information communication technology on climate policy resilience in different political systems.
