Mollie has more than two decades of experience in climate change, greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation and accounting, energy efficiency, and sustainability consulting. She has assisted various federal, state, local, and private clients in tracking and reporting sustainability metrics and managing organizational environmental initiatives and programs.
Mollie began her career with us in Washington D.C., providing regulatory support and policy analysis for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on Title VI of the Clean Air Act, focusing on reporting the production and consumption of ozone-depleting substances both domestically and as per the United States participation in the Montreal Protocol. Mollie has serious subject matter expertise on fluorinated GHG emissions and their associated industry sectors. She has conducted numerous studies to estimate fluorinated GHG emissions for the EPA, including ongoing contributions to the U.S. GHG inventory. She assisted the EPA in the rollout of the first-ever national GHG registry and has helped verify emission estimates reported to the U.S. government as required by this program.
Mollie helps private clients calculate their global carbon footprints. She has provided related advisory services to these clients to set well-informed climate mitigation and sustainability goals. Mollie has also helped U.S. federal agencies respond to sustainability mandates and implement employee behavioral change programs.
Mollie has nearly two decades of experience in voluntary public-private partnerships, working with the EPA to form program-development techniques and identify new priority areas for program implementation. She has extensive programmatic expertise from decades of support to a small partnership between the EPA and the U.S. electric power systems industry that targets reductions of sulfur hexafluoride emissions. Additionally, since 2016, Mollie has contributed to the EPA’s efforts to run the larger-scale ENERGY STAR product labeling program. She serves in a managerial role in program administration, brand integrity, and product specification. She works with teams of energy efficiency consultants that follow and track market trends—such as electrification and broader decarbonization policies—to inform strategy and make program growth recommendations to the EPA.
Mollie, her husband, and their two daughters returned to New England in 2015. She currently resides in Vermont and works out of our Burlington office.
