Cole Hackett

I have a passion for sustainability and combating climate change. My goal is to develop strategies and policies that promote sustainable development and protect the environment. I am an early-career professional eager to learn on the job after finishing my education at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. Joining Ascent’s Berkeley office gave me a great opportunity to bring my experiences from the Central Coast to my native Bay Area. As a member of the office Green Team, I am part of a group advocating for environmental sustainability in the workplace. Green Team participation allows me to take an active role in developing and implementing initiatives to reduce the company’s carbon footprint and promote sustainable and engaging practices.

Outside of the office, I enjoy exploring restaurants, happy hours, and trivia nights around my new home in San Francisco. Growing up, my passion for conservation was created and nurtured by my enjoyment of the outdoors, which set me on my path to pursue a career in the environmental world. I continue to enjoy skiing as much as possible in the winter and exploring our national parks and forests in the summer.
