Adam Meier directs HPN’s Green & Healthy Communities initiative, which strives to co-create solutions with HPN members and partners to facilitate the sector’s progress towards science-based climate targets and equitable health outcomes. Adam's work in support of our members resides at the intersection of sustainability, public health, and social and environmental justice.
Adam comes to HPN from Harvard University where he led sustainability programs for Harvard’s public health, medical, and dental schools. Before Harvard, he managed the Massachusetts Green Energy Retrofit Initiative providing energy and sustainability consulting to multi-family affordable housing developments at New Ecology. Adam cut his teeth in building systems working summers with his father as a HVAC mechanic, which led him to design and manage installations of residential ground-source heat pump (geothermal) systems at a renewable energy start up in NY.
Adam has a master’s degree in public health from Harvard's T.H. Chan School of Public Health and a BA in Environmental Humanities from Stony Brook University. He is a Senior Fellow in the Environmental Leadership Program.
