Since joining the EPA leadership team in February 2010, Spalding has been leading a holistic approach to finding environmental solutions in New England. He’s emphasized efforts in environmental justice and green economy. Spalding has focused our efforts in the region on three cross-cutting initiatives: Climate Change, Stormwater and Communities.
