2016年,Katie Theoharide秘书加入了贝克 - 波利托管理局,担任能源和环境事务行政办公室气候和全球变暖解决方案总监。在预约担任秘书之前,Theoharides担任政府的气候变化的缺乏症。作为副义务,她领导了国家危险缓解和气候适应计划,并创造了自2017年以来授予4400万美元的市脆性准备计划,以支持优先气候恢复力项目,在该方案中举办了89%的市政当局。

Since her appointment as secretary in May 2019, Theoharides has spearheaded key initiatives to advance the Administration’s climate, clean energy, and environmental agenda, including establishing a nation-leading target of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. To achieve that ambitious goal, Theoharides led a first-in-the-nation, two-year planning process culminating in the Administration’s 2050 Decarbonization Roadmap, which outlines the policies and strategies the Commonwealth will need to reach net-zero over 30 years. Theoharides also played a key role in negotiating comprehensive, nation-leading climate legislation signed by Governor Baker in March 2021, including key provisions related to environmental justice.

As chair of the Transportation and Climate Initiative Leadership Team, Theoharides helped to launch a groundbreaking multi-jurisdictional program with Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Washington D.C. that will reduce motor vehicle pollution by at least 26% and generate over $1.8 billion in Massachusetts by 2032. Theoharides has also led the Administration’s efforts to bring offshore wind to the Commonwealth.
