Doug Koplow founded Earth Track in 1999 to more effectively integrate information on energy subsidies. Over the past 17 years, Mr. Koplow has written extensively on natural resource subsidies for organizations such as the National Commission on Energy Policy, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), Greenpeace, the Alliance to Save Energy, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. He has analyzed scores of government programs and made important developments in subsidy valuation techniques.
His work outside of the subsidy area has included water conservation, wastewater treatment, hazardous waste tracking, recycling, and brownfields redevelopment. Working collaboratively with other organizations, Earth Track focuses on ways to more effectively align the incentives of key stakeholder groups and to leverage market forces to help address complex environmental challenges. Mr. Koplow holds an MBA from the Harvard Graduate School of Business Administration and a BA in economics from Wesleyan University. He served on United Nations Environment Programme's Working Group on Economic Instruments from 2001-2004; and the National Recycling Coalition's Policy Workgroup from 1998-2003.
