Doug O’Malley is Environment New Jersey’s director. Doug has worked on a broad array of environmental issues over the last 16 years in Trenton. His work has included campaigns to protect New Jersey’s waterways from fracking waste and clean up New Jersey’s air, building public support for the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) to combat global warming, fast-tracking New Jersey’s clean energy economy through expansion of solar, off-shore wind and energy efficiency and fighting against the expansion of fossil fuel projects around the state. As a clean water advocate, he ran successful campaigns to protect some of the state’s largest reservoirs and rivers from development close to their banks and directed citizen outreach offices, coordinating a staff of 20 to educate more than 60,000 Central Jersey citizens on their doorsteps on pressing environmental issues. He serves on the board of the Work Environment Council, Environment America and Environmental Endowment of New Jersey and is a member of the Better Choices Coalition and Anti-Poverty Network. He was recognized by EPA Region II with an Environmental Quality award in 2012. Doug graduated from Harvard in 2001 with a degree in history.
