(NEW YORK – Jan. 3, 2019) Environmental Defense Fund is pleased to announce that Elizabeth Brooke Stein, the organization’s Senior Manager for New York Clean Energy Law & Policy has been named to Crain’s New York Business’ list of Notable Women in Law. The 112-lawyer list features the distinguished careers and civic activities of attorneys who’ve had a major impact in New York City.

“It’s an honor to be included in Crains’ Notable Women in Law list alongside so many other distinguished attorneys,” said Stein. “I’m grateful for the opportunity to advocate for environmentally and economically sound policies and practices, and to my colleagues for their shared commitment to addressing challenging environmental problems.”

Stein focuses on legal and policy advocacy for the development of a clean energy system. She engages in state and regional proceedings to advocate for technology and practices that improve the electric system’s performance, and enable the use of more low-carbon and renewable energy resources. Since 2012, Stein and her colleagues in EDF’s New York office have been working to ensure that the post-Sandy transformation of New York’s electric system is built on a foundation of resiliency and sustainability, not just durability.
