Mr. Corey has over 30 years of professional experience in the air quality and climate change field. Prior to his appointment as Executive Officer, he served as Deputy Executive Officer, Chief of the Stationary Source Division, as well as various management positions throughout the organization.
Mr. Corey’s team of approximately 1,700 engineers, scientists, technicians, analysts, are responsible for a broad range of programs including those concerning cleaner emission standards for motor vehicles and equipment, fuels, climate, incentives, and air toxics. Some of the key programs that his team is responsible for implementing include the zero and near zero emission standards for mobile and off road sources (e.g., cars, trucks, fork lifts, cargo handling equipment, motor cycles, and lawnmowers), low carbon fuel standard, cap-and-trade regulation, and focused efforts to drive down emissions and exposure in impacted communities throughout the state.
Other measures include incentives of over one billion dollars to support reducing emissions from a variety of goods movement sources, including port trucking, transport refrigeration units, cargo handling operations, maritime operations, rail-related goods movement, and measures to reduce emissions from stationary and portable diesel engines as well as several strategies to reduce toxic air contaminants from a wide variety of sources.
A key focus of CARB is developing policies that not only work for California by reducing emissions of pollution while creating economic opportunities for clean technologies, but building national and international partnerships. The CARB has partnered with states and jurisdictions around the worlds that are helping to secure additional emission reductions and bolstering the signal to the market that investments in zero and near zero emission technologies will be rewarded.
Mr. Corey has an undergraduate degree in Environmental Toxicology as well as an MBA from the University of California, Davis.
