This year the Ecology Center is celebrating the work of an incredible changemaker, Gina McCarthy. Gina McCarthy has been a leading advocate for common sense strategies to protect public health and the environment for more than 30 years. She served under President Barack Obama as the 13th Administrator of the EPA from 2013–2017.
As the head of the EPA under President Obama, she led historic progress to achieve the administration's public health and environmental protection goals and Climate Action Plan. In 2015, McCarthy signed the Clean Power Plan, which set the first-ever national standards for reducing carbon emissions from existing power plants, underscoring the country's commitment to domestic climate action and spurring international efforts that helped secure the Paris Climate Agreement. Gina also led the EPA effort to establish the first-ever national car and SUV GHG emissions standards. Other accomplishments include reducing air pollution, protecting water resources, and strengthening chemical safety to better protect more Americans, especially the most vulnerable, from negative health impacts.
