Marc Yaggi, Executive Director of Waterkeeper Alliance, a global movement uniting more than 350 Waterkeeper groups around the world focusing citizen action on issues that affect our waterways, released the following statement:

“These executive actions and orders are vital first steps to reversing the environmental failings of the last four years and rebuilding our nation’s image on the world stage,” said Marc Yaggi, executive director of Waterkeeper Alliance. “President Biden’s no-time-to-waste approach is exactly the type of ambitious and proactive leadership needed to restore the protections, laws, and safeguards that the health of our environment and communities depend upon. While undoing years of systemic damage will not occur overnight, this executive action is forward progress and a clear signal to nations across the globe that the United States will no longer sit on the sidelines in this generational fight to combat the climate crisis.”
