Family & Friends Weekend

Save the Date: October 28–30

2016 Keynote Speaker: Fred Krupp

Through his pioneering work in using market forces to advance environmental goals, Environmental Defense Fund president Fred Krupp has become a leading advocate for environmental protection. Over his 31 years heading EDF, the group has grown from a small nonprofit to an international one with more than 500 staff in the United States, China, Mexico and Europe. Under Krupp’s leadership, EDF designed the market-based acid rain policy that reduced U.S. sulfur dioxide pollution by 76% since 1990. Since serving on U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu’s advisory panel for shale gas production, Krupp has been a powerful voice for strong regulation to cut methane emissions and protect communities from air and water pollution caused by natural gas development. He also has led EDF’s pathbreaking partnerships with FedEx, KKR, McDonald's, Walmart and others. Krupp has been called on by Presidents George H. W. Bush, Clinton and Obama to advise on numerous environmental issues. He is co-author with Miriam Horn of the New York Times best seller Earth: The Sequel – The Race to Reinvent Energy and Stop Global Warming.
