Sue Chiang, MPH, MPP
Pollution Prevention Director, Center for Environmental Health
Sue works with institutional purchasers from a wide range of sectors to harness their collective buying power to eliminate the use of harmful chemicals and expand the market for environmentally preferable products. Her current focus is on hormone disrupting chemicals in consumer products – particularly in food and food packaging. Prior to that, Sue led CEH's work to create market incentives for the electronics industry to design, manufacture and responsibly manage their products at end-of-life in a way that protects public health. She was active in the development of the international EPEAT eco-label for electronics and served on the multi-stakeholder oversight committee, advocating for the development of strong, credible environmental standards. She also served on the steering committee of the national Electronics TakeBack Coalition.
Sue received a B.A. degree in environmental science from Barnard College and completed a double-Master’s program at University of California Berkeley’s Goldman School of Public Policy and the Graduate School of Public Health, where she was a recipient of the prestigious Switzer Environmental Fellowship. She also serves on the U.S. Board of the Global Alliance for Incinerator Alternatives.
