Jordan Stutt grew up in New Paltz, New York, a college town, ex-hippie enclave, and home to endless outdoor activities in the Hudson Valley. Making maple syrup with his dad, spending afternoons at the CSA with his mom, and rock climbing with his big brother, Jordan developed an appreciation for the natural environment that has played a guiding role throughout his life.
Jordan attended Tufts University, where he majored in Environmental Studies and International Relations. His coursework included classes like Global Environmental Policy and Climate Change and the Law, opening his eyes to the challenges facing our energy system as well as the solutions and opportunities presented by policy and innovation. While at Tufts, Jordan was a defender/minivan driver for the school’s nascent club soccer team.
Following undergrad Jordan spent two and a half years working at Pace Law School’s Energy and Climate Center as an Energy Policy Analyst. While at Pace Jordan learned about energy markets, regulatory structures and the value of advocacy that aligns environmental and economic outcomes. He now lives in Boston and works at Acadia Center, a non- profit research and advocacy organization committed to building a clean energy economy. His work at Acadia Center is focused on establishing and strengthening market-based programs to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation and power sectors, and his duties range from analysis to coalition building to policymaker engagement.
