Greg Andeck serves as Director of Strategy and Government Relations for the North Carolina state office of the National Audubon Society.
At Audubon, Greg oversees the group’s policy priorities and political strategy each year with the General Assembly, Office of the Governor, and state agencies. He also plays a lead role in message development, grassroots engagement, and coordination with partner organizations. Recent policy victories for Audubon in North Carolina include increasing the amount of funding for land and habitat protection, new requirements for use of native plants on state roadways, and protecting globally important barrier islands, marsh, and forests.
Prior to joining Audubon, Greg led Environmental Defense Fund’s (EDF) Clean Energy Program in North Carolina where he engaged companies, regulators, and policymakers to transform the state’s electric grid in a way that boosted renewables, energy efficiency, and reductions in air pollution. At EDF, Greg also led new project development for the organization’s Corporate Partnerships Program, crafting partnerships with Fortune 500 companies in the private equity, food service, and global telecommunications industries and pioneering new sustainability innovations. His work helped generate millions of dollars in energy savings for partner companies and reduced greenhouse gas emissions by thousands of tons.
Greg earned his Bachelor of Science degree from Cornell University and a Master of Environmental Management Degree from Duke University’s Nicholas School of the Environment. Greg and his wife, Leeza, reside in Carrboro, N.C., with their two sons and take every opportunity to hike, camp, and explore North Carolina’s natural wonders.
