Katelyn Roedner Sutter
Manager, U.S. Climate
Katelyn is Manager for U.S. Climate, where she advocates for legislation and administrative policies in states including California to establish and implement long-term greenhouse gas emission reductions and improve local air quality.
Katelyn was directly involved in the 2017 legislative extension of California’s cap-and-trade program and subsequent regulatory updates at the California Air Resources Board. She also provides quarterly analysis on the Western Climate Initiative auctions and shares the lessons learned from the WCI market with jurisdictions considering a carbon market as a tool to curb greenhouse gas emissions.
Katelyn has worked on environmental justice issues in California’s San Joaquin Valley focusing on air quality, climate change, and local land use. She had led coalition work to advocate for policy change, lobbied lawmakers on behalf of rural and environmental justice communities in California, and worked with faith communities to spur action on climate change.
