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.
President Biden has appointed Gina McCarthy as the National Climate Advisor and Ali Zaidi as the Deputy National Climate Advisor. Under their leadership, the Climate Policy Office convenes the National Climate Task Force, which assembles Cabinet-level leaders from across 21 federal agencies and departments.
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.
