LONDON and WASHINGTON DC, November 10th 2022 -
The Clean Growth Leadership Network (CGLN), today announced Christine Weydig as the latest addition to our CGLN Fellows.
Weydig is the executive director of the Coalition for Reimagined Mobility (ReMo), a global initiative bringing together private and public sector leaders to help transform our transportation systems to meet the realities of a rapidly changing world and advance a bold vision for the cleaner, more efficient, equitable, and resilient movement of people and goods.
Prior to ReMo, Weydig served as the Director of Sustainability at the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, where she led efforts to achieve the agency’s industry-leading net-zero climate commitments across the agency’s airports, seaports, bridges and tunnels, rail systems, and buildings and transportation hubs.
"I am delighted to welcome Christine Weydig to our Fellows Network – her vast experience working to, amongst other things, develop green transportation systems fit for the 21st century, makes her an asset to our growing collection of expert voices working across our nine sectors," said CGLN Director Yulia Chekunaeva.
Weydig is also an Operating Partner at Tiger Infrastructure Partners where she supports the management team on Environmental Social and Governance matters and investments related to energy transition and transportation systems. Her understanding of how to catalyse responsible investment in the climate technology and solutions needed to achieve growing climate ambitions complements her recognized technical and operational expertise in sustainability.
Weydig’s career has centered around public-private partnerships to address the needs of complex energy and transportation systems. This included tenures at the U.S. Departments of Energy and State, as well as work with the U.S. Agency for International Development, and the United Nations Development Programme. Weydig also spent several years in management consulting, primarily in emerging markets and change management, working with public and private sector clients.
“I am excited to join CGLN’s community of leaders committed to accelerating solutions that solve the world’s climate crisis,” said Christine Weydig. “Reducing greenhouse gas emissions and oil dependence across the transport sector is essential to enhancing resilience and mitigating climate change. Cross-sectoral collaboration that facilitates knowledge and technology transfer is essential to the transition to a low-carbon economy and our ability to place human wellness at the centre of this transition.”
