History and BackgroundClimate Survey Response SynopsisTab title

Background Resources 

APCO Worldwide established The Advancement of Sound Science Coalition for Phillip Morris in 1993.  This front group was set up to question the science around the harmful impacts of tobacco smoke.  They incorporated other issues including climate change and pesticides so that the work would not be entirely focused on tobacco

APCO Worldwide employee Tom Harris was involved in the launch of Friends of Science in 2002, a Canadian front group set up to attack climate policy.  Harris later denied to Sourcewatch that he was involved.

APCO Energy and Clean Tech Practice:

APCO’s Energy & Clean Tech practice, led by Maggie Brown, works with clients across all sectors of the energy industry — from traditional fuel sources to renewables such as hydropower, solar, wind and biofuels. APCO also advises clients in the burgeoning clean tech industry including smart grid, green building, electric vehicles and energy monitoring. Clients benefit from APCO’s strategic alliances with the American Council of Renewable Energy (ACORE), the Clean Tech Open, the University of Washington Clean Tech Institute, as well as from the insights of Governor Bill Richardson, a former U.S. secretary of energy, who is chairman of APCO’s Global Political Strategies (GPS) group.” – From O’Dwyer’s Special Issue on Environmental Communications and Public Affairs, February 2014
