The White House Office of Domestic Climate Policy (Climate Policy Office) implements the President’s domestic climate agenda, coordinating the all-of-government approach to tackle the climate crisis, create good-paying, union jobs, and advance environmental justice.
The Climate Policy Office was created to coordinate the policy-making process with respect to domestic climate-policy issues; coordinate domestic climate-policy advice to the President; ensure that domestic climate-policy decisions and programs are consistent with the President’s stated goals and that those goals are being effectively pursued; and monitor implementation of the President’s domestic climate-policy agenda. As part of this work, the Climate Policy Office also convenes a wide range of interagency working groups to assist the National Climate Task Force on federal actions to: reduce climate pollution in every sector of the economy; increase resilience to the impacts of climate change; protect public health; conserve our lands, waters, oceans, and biodiversity; deliver environmental justice; and spur good-paying, union jobs and economic growth.
President Biden established the Climate Policy Office in the January 27, 2021 Executive Order on Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad. President Biden has appointed Ali Zaidi as Assistant to the President and National Climate Advisor to lead the Climate Policy Office.
