The following research presents (i) a list of the chief sustainability officers (or similar), and the partnerships/sponsorship lead within the 54 listed organizations, and (ii) a list of the top ten environmental sustainability/climate influencers based in the San Francisco Bay Area. For each, we've provided the first name, last name, title, email address, LinkedIn profile URL, and Twitter handles. The top influencers were selected based on the highest environmental and sustainability impact/influence they have made. For most of the leads, we were able to find employees from the San Francisco Bay Area, however, for some, we had to provide leads outside the preferred region. A few cells were also marked as 'N/A' due to the unavailability of data. The detailed research strategy for the above cases can be reviewed in the 'Research Strategy' section below.

For this research on potential partnership and sponsorship list, we leveraged the most reputable sources of information that were available in the public domain, including official company websites, LinkedIn, RocketReach, Hunter.io, Snov.io, and Anymail Finder. Some companies have sustainability officers/heads who also drive strategic partnerships. As a result, a few companies would have one lead listed in the spreadsheet as they were the most relevant for this research. For employees who have different roles when it comes to partnerships/sponsorship and sustainability, we've added two for those companies. For many companies, there weren't any employees who specifically handled partnerships/sponsorship. In order to remain within the preferred region, we've expanded the research to add the closest that match the described role and the preferred requirement of the region, that is, the San Francisco Bay Area. For some leads, there were no LinkedIn profiles or Twitter accounts. We've added 'N/A' in those cases. We've used third-party email finders to provide the email addresses of the employees. We had to log in to create an account in order to find the email addresses. That's why we created a separate Google Doc and added all the screenshots of the post-login view in the doc. The email addresses with a delivery rate of more than 70% were included in this research. In some instances, slightly dated resources were used to add robustness and/or corroboration to the findings, considering the highly specific nature of the topic and the limited availability of more recent reputable sources.
Some companies did not have sustainability heads/officers. Thus, partnership leads are provided for these companies along with sustainability heads of other regions. It was observed that some companies' leaders hired leaders from one specific area, such as their HQ region, and sometimes the HQ region was not in the San Francisco Bay Area. And that's why, we either found other matching roles or expanded the region, as applicable. Further, we've also added a note in column H for employees where we expanded the location outside the preferred region of the San Francisco Bay Area. In summary, we first looked for other employees with similar roles, and when not found, we expanded the geographic scope. Some companies did not have titles like 'Chief' or 'Head' or 'Directors' or 'Presidents' or 'Vice-Presidents'. That's why we leveraged the next best titles like Sr. Manager/Manager. In some smaller organizations, there were very few leaders. For these cases, we've included the only 1-2 leaders that the organization had. Some companies also had one leader in total while some companies did not mention any leaders at all in the public domain. For a few employees where the LinkedIn profile was not available, we've added their Instagram profile as an alternative, wherever available. The information on Eagle Scouts & Girl Scouts organization was not available in the public domain at all. Thus, we've marked N/A for this row. The top influencers were selected based on the highest environmental and sustainability impact/influence they have made. The sources reviewed to determine the top influencers have been added below. The completed spreadsheet can be accessed here. All the sources are hyperlinked in the respective cells of the spreadsheet.
