Former Director, White House Office of Energy and Climate Change Policy
Carol Browner recently served as Director of the White House Office of Energy and Climate Change Policy (2009-2011). There she oversaw the coordination of environmental, energy, climate, transportation and related policy across the federal government. During her tenure, she helped secure the largest investment ever in clean energy, established new automobile fuel efficiency standards and oversaw the first-ever greenhouse reductions.
Browner also served as the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from 1993-2001. She helped the EPA adopt the most stringent air pollution standards in U.S. history, set the fine particle clean air standard for the first time, and spearheaded the reauthorization of the Safe Drinking Water Act as well as the Food Quality Protection Act.
As Secretary of Environmental Regulation in Florida (1991-1993) she launched the largest ecological restoration project ever attempted to restore the natural flow of water to the Everglades.
Today, a Senior Counselor of Albright Stonebridge Group, Browner will offer The Club a global perspective in the areas of environmental protection, energy conservation, climate change, water security and resource scarcity – all issues that impact our Great Lakes region.
