2024 Honoree: Gina McCarthy

Gina McCarthy

As one of the nation’s most respected voices on climate change, Gina McCarthy was appointed by President Biden to serve as the first White House National Climate Advisor from 2021 to 2022. Her leadership led to the most aggressive climate action in U.S. history, creating new jobs and unprecedented clean energy innovation and investments across the country.

Under President Obama, she served as head of the EPA and led historic progress to achieve crucial public health and environmental protection goals. Gina has worked with the United Nations and World Health Organization on a variety of efforts and has represented the U.S. on global initiatives to reduce high-risk sources of pollution. She previously served

as Commissioner of the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection and as President and CEO of the Natural Resources Defense Council.
