The Environmental Partnership yesterday announced Emily Hague, who currently leads the American Petroleum Institute’s (API) Onshore Safety Alliance, will begin service as Director beginning in January.
Hague will succeed Matthew Todd, who is departing after five years of leading The Partnership and more than 20 years at API. In her new role, she will lead The Partnership’s efforts to drive innovation and share best practices among industry leaders to improve environmental performance and reduce methane emissions in every major U.S. basin.
“The Environmental Partnership serves a critical role in uniting industry efforts to address the climate challenge,” said Hague. “I am honored to be working with these talented men and women to continue to drive progress.”
Prior to joining API, Hague worked at the Department of the Interior as a career employee, supporting senior leadership under both the Bush and Obama Administrations and working across the Department and within the Assistant Secretary for Land and Minerals, the Office of the Solicitor, and the Minerals Management Service. She holds a J.D. from the University of Houston Law Center and a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Rice University.
The Texas Methane & Flaring Coalition is excited about the continued important work of The Environmental Partnership and congratulates both Hague and Todd for their leadership on these important issues.
