Self-Description: (2006) Founded in 1999, EESI is a nonprofit incubator for economic, social and environmental entrepreneurship.  EESI developed as a partnership of the Pennsylvania Environmental Council (PEC), the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection and the 21st Century Environment Commission.  EESI seeks to find solutions that respect the necessary balance between environmental, community, and economic interests.  EESI is committed to using market-based solutions, partnerships, demonstration projects, and policy innovation to achieve lasting environmental benefits and promote long-term economic opportunity.
(2008) EESI is a unique public-private partnership working to share knowledge and identify best practices in environmental protection, policy innovation and economic performance around the country. The program is based on a vision to use economic and other means to improve overall environmental quality. It is striving to demonstrate innovated approaches to a new era of competition, growth and long-term prosperity for the communities in which we live and work.

Actual: An advocacy tool of the Pennsylvania Environmental Council used to spread global warming and clean water propaganda and convince states and other governments to adopt ideological policies masquerading as scientific directives to be imposed on all businesses in their jurisdictions. EESI created the Center for Climate Strategies (CCS, an assumed name, not incorporated) in 2004 as a front, which claimed to be a non-advocacy and non-ideological team of experts, until 2009 when critics publicized CCS's linkage to the advocacy and ideology of the Pennsylvania Environmental Council. In 2008, CCS changed its address from Harrisburg, PA to Washington, D.C.

Highly irregular identity masking: This page from the EESI 2007 IRS Form 990 reveals that Brian Hill, who supposedly served EESI without compensation, actually served as the well-compensated CEO of the advocacy group, Pennsylvania Environmental Council.

The following entry from Pennsylvania Secretary of State Corporate Filings shows that the sudden disappearance of EESI's webpage and the robot-blockage of its Internet Archive web history has the earmarks of an attempt to hide the fact that the Center for Climate Strategies had ever been linked to PEC. What seems to have happened was that EESI merely changed its corporate name to Center for Climate Strategies, retaining EESI's federal EIN (Employer Identification Number) and its IRS 501(c)(3) exempt status. Until the principals of this organization clarify their intent, The Librarian reserves judgment on whether this involved intent to deceive.
