Leonardo DiCaprio and the head of his foundation have met with Donald Trump to discuss how jobs centering on preserving the environment can boost the economy.

Terry Tamminen, the CEO of the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, confirmed the meeting Wednesday at Trump Tower in a statement to The Associated Press.

Tamminen says he and DiCaprio presented Trump, his daughter Ivanka, and other members of Trump’s team with a “framework” on how focusing on renewable, clean energy could create millions of jobs.

The Oscar-winning actor has been a strong advocate of fighting climate change and preserving wildlife. He recently released a documentary addressing the same themes, called “Before the Flood.”

DiCaprio met with Ivanka Trump a few days ago and presented her with a copy of the film.
