[News release] Alan Lloyd stepping down as ICCT President

Will continue to guide the ICCT as President Emeritus

Dr. Alan Lloyd, founding president and charter board member, announced today that he will retire as president of the International Council on Clean Transportation, effective December 1, 2013.

In light of his substantial contributions to the ICCT and to environmental policy more broadly, the ICCT Board of Directors is honoring his service by naming Dr. Lloyd President Emeritus, and has asked him to continue to serve on the board. Dr. Lloyd will also continue to help guide the organization in a consulting role.

“Alan has been a tremendous president for ICCT, and we are pleased that he will continue to contribute to our work,” said Dan Greenbaum, Chair of the ICCT Board of Directors. “He is gifted with a keen mind for the nexus between policy and science, and holds tremendous stature in the field of air pollution and transportation.”

Dr. Lloyd has been the ICCT’s president and a member of its board of directors since 2006. He served as Secretary of the California Environmental Protection Agency from 2004 through February 2006, chairing the Climate Action Team to implement Governor Schwarzenegger’s greenhouse gas reduction goals. He was Chairman of the California Air Resources Board from 1999 to 2004, the period during which California passed the first greenhouse gas regulation (AB 1493).

Before joining CARB, Dr. Lloyd was Executive Director of the Energy and Environmental Engineering Center for the Desert Research Institute at the University and Community College System of Nevada, Reno, and chief scientist at the South Coast Air Quality Management District from 1988 to 1996. He earned his B.S. in Chemistry and Ph.D. in Gas Kinetics at the University College of Wales, Aberystwyth.

“The ICCT staff have benefited tremendously from their opportunity to work with and learn from Alan,” said Drew Kodjak, ICCT’s Executive Director. “I look forward to working with Alan on the key issues confronting the ICCT in the years ahead.”

A celebration to honor Dr. Lloyd’s years of excellent service to the ICCT and the State of California will take place in January 2014.
