The New England for Offshore Wind Coalition: The Policies (and Politics) Driving the New England States to Achieve the Potential of Responsibly-developed Offshore Wind.

 The Environmental League of Massachusetts (ELM) is the founding leader of the New England for Offshore Wind Coalition (NE4OSW).  This coalition advocates for the six New England states to significantly raise their offshore wind procurement commitments, and significantly deepen their regional collaboration.  NE4OSW members are committed to supporting offshore wind’s role in achieving our climate goals and unlocking the astounding economic development potential of this resource.  Join Elizabeth for a timely, candid discussion about the state of offshore wind in New England and the advocacy strategies underway to harness this resource in an environmentally and socially responsible way.

Elizabeth Turnbull Henry took the lead of the Environmental League of Massachusetts in 2017, drawn to the ambitious goals and pragmatic strategies that have long been ELM’s hallmark. She is committed to making Massachusetts lead the nation in environmental policy and getting on a pathway to net zero emissions. She has particular passion for pricing carbon, expanding offshore wind, and electing environmental champions to office. Under Elizabeth’s leadership, ELM’s Corporate Council and the ELM Action Fund have grown. Both organizations build political will to create policy solutions that match the urgency of the challenges we face as a Commonwealth and a planet. A proven sustainability leader, she previously directed climate and energy programs for Adidas. She also consulted to the US Department of Energy, worked as Sustainability Lead for a Massachusetts-based residential construction firm, and led international travel programs to over 30 countries.  Elizabeth has an MBA and Masters of Environmental Management (MEM) from Yale University and a BA in Environmental Policy and Economics from Colby College.
