Adam Lowry is the cofounder and chief "greenskeeper" of the home-care product company Method. Lowry believes that design is the most confusing word in the English language, and that business is our greatest vehicle for positive social and environmental change. It is at the intersection of these beliefs that he has focused his work. At Method, he is bringing sustainable innovations to the business. He also directs the sustainability aspects of product design, sourcing, production, and marketing. Prior to founding Method, Lowry worked as a climate scientist at the Carnegie Institution for Science, developing software products for the modeling of climate change. He has been honored as one of Vanity Fair's Global Citizens, and as the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Man of the Year. He holds a BS in chemical engineering from Stanford University.
