Adam Lowry

Founder & Chief GreenskeeperAdam Lowry
Method Products, Inc.

Founder and Chief Greenskeeper of Method Products, Adam Lowry believes that business, as the Earth’s largest and most powerful institution, has both the opportunity and the obligation to be the greatest agent of positive social and environmental change on the planet. First and foremost an entrepreneur and change agent, Adam has a proven track record of innovation across multiple categories and consumer segments.

Prior to founding Method, Adam worked as a climate scientist for the Carnegie Institution of Washington, in their Department of Global Ecology. At Carnegie Adam developed software products for the study of global climate change, including leading analysis that lead to the landmark Kyoto Protocol of 1997. Passionate about the cause but frustrated that he was “preaching to the converted”, it was at Carnegie Adam that developed his unique approach to commercial environmentalism that forms the basis of Method’s success today. Prior to Carnegie, he began his career in product design, developing recycled and biodegradable plastic products for the automotive industry, where he earned the first of his 5 patents.

In 2000, Adam and co-founder Eric Ryan started Method Products, Inc., the first premium brand in the home cleaning category. Taking on the giants of the consumer products industry by using design to create relevance in the mass market for environmentally and socially minded products, Method is the 7th fastest growing company in America and grown to the nation’s leading green home care company. True to Adam’s philosophy, Method is a carbon neutral business.
