About Clare

Clare Schulzki is the Executive Director of the Institute of Clean Air Companies (ICAC), a trade association managed by AJW. She oversees the association’s operations and finds ways to maximize the reach of ICAC to benefit its members’ business objectives. Clare identifies and tracks important developments in legislation, regulation, and the market, and organizes government agency interaction to create an informed environment for optimal regulatory and marketplace outcomes for all.

For the last six years, Clare has also been a member of the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Environmental Technologies Trade Advisory Committee (ETTAC), a federally established committee whose purpose is to advise the U.S. government on the policies and procedures that affect environmental technologies, goods, and services exports in the air, water, solid waste, and recycling sectors. She currently serves as the ETTAC chair.

Clare has worked on environmental, energy, and health and safety policy for more than 15 years. She has worked to affect legislation and regulation at the federal level for various trade associations, including those representing the scrap recycling industry, large industrial users of electricity and natural gas, and manufacturers of advanced ceramics. She has also represented trade associations and companies at the state and local levels.

While representing the scrap recycling industry, Clare lobbied to enact the Superfund Recycling Equity Act of 1999. The passage of this law provided the scrap recycling industry with a valid defense to Superfund liability, provided companies could demonstrate they took certain steps before shipping recyclable material to a consuming facility.
