Jeff Carter

President & CEO

Clean Water Action

We partnered with Clean Water Action on the search for a President & CEO. Clean Water Action organizes strong grassroots groups, coalitions, and campaigns to elect environmental candidates and to solve environmental and community problems.
Our work resulted in the appointment of Jeff Carter to the role. He will join the organization in April 2023.

Carter has more than a decade of executive experience, most recently serving as Executive Director of Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR), a membership organization of health professionals in the US working to protect the public from the global threats posed by climate change, environmental destruction, and nuclear weapons proliferation.

During his tenure with PSR, Carter oversaw an issue portfolio that included combating climate changing emissions from the oil and gas industry; disclosing chemicals used in fracking that can contaminate our land, water, and air; promoting investment in clean, safe renewable energy and energy efficiency; protecting federal policies and programs that safeguard our climate; and educating and mobilizing health professionals to speak about climate change. He worked to support and mentor emerging leaders and diverse voices along the way, including the efforts of a new generation of health professionals seeking to bring racial justice to the forefront of today’s nuclear disarmament movement.

Carter holds a BA from Providence College. He earned his JD from Suffolk University.
