The Office of Environment and Energy develops, coordinates, and executes the Treasury Department’s role in the domestic and international environment and energy agenda of the United States.
The office’s key areas of focus include supporting broader U.S. efforts to facilitate a smooth transition to a national and global economy powered by clean energy and to improve the national and global environment. The office manages U.S. interests and obligations in multilateral financial mechanisms that support environmental goals, including the Green Climate Fund (GCF), Climate Investment Funds (CIF) at the World Bank, and the Global Environmental Facility (GEF). It assists the U.S. negotiating team on finance issues at U.N. climate negotiations and leads Treasury’s engagement on energy and climate finance efforts in the G-20.
The office is led by Deputy Assistant Secretary Leonardo Martinez, and the office is directed by Peter Wisner.
