Amy Boyd Rabin

Vice President of Policy

Amy Boyd Rabin joined the Environmental League of Massachusetts team in September 2023. As the Vice President of Policy, she helps drive the Commonwealth’s equitable environmental progress by crafting an ambitious and strategic policy agenda. Specifically, she focuses on ensuring Massachusetts achieves its carbon neutrality goals, grows its clean energy economy, and drives economic benefits to historically underserved communities. 

Amy brings extensive expertise in environmental policy and law — particularly related to regulating utilities, decarbonizing buildings, and phasing out the use of fossil fuels. Before joining ELM, she worked for nine years at Acadia Center, joining in 2014, and most recently serving as Vice President, Climate & Clean Energy Policy. While driving policy at Acadia Center, she shaped the organization’s work in the Northeast across six initiatives. In 2021, she published Reforming Energy System Planning for Equity and Climate Transformation (RESPECT), influencing public thought on the future of utility planning processes. Prior to Acadia Center, Amy was an associate in the Environmental practice group of Foley Hoag LLP.

Amy holds a JD cum laude from Northwestern University School of Law and a BA in Environmental Studies from Wellesley College.
