BSR Conference 2012: Fast Forward / October 23-26 / New York

Fred Krupp

President, Environmental Defense Fund

Plenary Panel Speaker

Fred Krupp

Environmental Defense Fund President Fred Krupp is widely recognized as a pioneer in harnessing market forces to protect the environment, from the acid rain reduction plan in the U.S. Clean Air Act to strategic partnerships with FedEx, McDonald’s, Walmart, and others. In 2011, U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu appointed Krupp to the panel charged with recommending measures to reduce the environmental impact and improve the safety of natural gas production. On the panel, Krupp was a powerful voice for greater oversight and enforcement, strong regulation of air and water pollution, public disclosure of chemicals in hydraulic fracturing fluids and wastewater, and reduction of methane leakage. Krupp is coauthor, with Miriam Horn, of the New York Times bestseller Earth: The Sequel—The Race to Reinvent Energy and Stop Global Warming.
