WESTWOOD, Mass. — enVerid Systems announced that former Massachusetts Congressman Joe Kennedy III has joined its board of directors.
“We are at an extraordinary moment with public policy laser-focused on a future where a healthy environment — both indoors and out — is a priority for all,” said Joe Kennedy III. “With its best-in-class advanced filtration products, enVerid is at the nexus of two imperatives for commercial and institutional buildings: addressing indoor air quality and energy efficiency. The stimulus — and anticipated infrastructure funding — will drive big advances in the health of our schools and other public buildings by funding upgrades to aging equipment including outdated HVAC systems. Energy efficiency and carbon reduction must go hand-in-hand with indoor air quality as part of this effort. I look forward to working with enVerid to drive further adoption of their award-winning solutions in schools and other public and private sector buildings.”
“enVerid is delighted to welcome Joe Kennedy III to our board of directors,” said Christian Weeks, CEO of enVerid Systems. “The built environment is at an inflection point. The pandemic spotlighted the importance of healthy buildings, and lowering GHG emissions has become a government-wide priority. Joe will be an invaluable resource as we navigate the many opportunities to improve IAQ in new and existing buildings in both the public and private sectors.”
Joseph Kennedy III served as the U.S. Representative for Massachusetts’ 4th congressional district from 2013 to 2021. During his tenure, Kennedy was a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
