Jeremy founded Environmental Incentives to pioneer performance-driven conservation in the fields of water quality and wildlife management. Jeremy has facilitated stakeholder groups and guided policy-makers through the design and adoption of programs that underpin regulatory permits and define the performance outcomes for over $1 billion in federal, state and local taxpayer investments. He is creating performance contracting approaches that will unlock many more billions of dollars for public-private partnerships to improve the environment both in the US and abroad.
Jeremy applies the concepts of game theory and behavioral economics to the design of environmental programs and policies that break regulatory stand-offs and inspire action by creating compelling incentives that inspire behavior change. Jeremy is the chief strategist for Environmental Incentives and many of our government and NGO clients.
Jeremy aspires to influence the decisions and behavior of 1 billion people related to how their actions impact the environment. This will require Jeremy’s innovations related to tracking and reporting environmental outcomes to become standard approaches underpinning environmental policies, government procurement and corporate impact assessments. He sees community open data initiatives as another emerging opportunity to influence how people understand how their land use and consumption decisions impact the environment. He also aspires to create the performance contracting tools that will enable all taxpayers to understand the environmental return on investment from the use of public funds in the name of the environment.
