Priscilla Halloran is a senior policy advisor and environmental health scientist with the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Resource Conservation and Recovery in Washington, DC. Priscilla has been with EPA for over 25 years, specializing in sustainable materials management concepts and approaches, toxic and hazardous materials use and waste reduction using broad innovative thinking and approaches. She serves as a key player in moving EPA from single media and end-of-pipe approaches to more efficient and sustainable materials management, a life cycle vision for materials management. She led the development and execution of the G7 Workshop on the Use of Life Cycle Concepts in Supply Chain Management to Achieve Resource Efficiency. She led EPA’s life cycle assessment of the US consumption of goods and services, developing an analytical framework for applying materials management. Priscilla was integral to crafting a report linking and showing alternative approaches for reducing climate change impacts by focusing on material use and land revitalization. Priscilla has been a leader in promoting innovative policies and business models that decouple consumption from resource use. Her work on product-service systems led to product-service systems becoming a key work area within Sustainable Public Procurement Programme under the UNEP’s 10 Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production. Her work builds on her success in developing and implementing state-of-the-art human and ecological risk analysis in regulatory and non-regulatory activities. Before coming to EPA, Priscilla consulted local communities on developing strategies to resolve issues from harbor contamination to holistic solid waste management. Priscilla has B.A. in Neuroscience and Behavior from Mount Holyoke College and a Master of Public Health (Environmental Health focus) from the Yale School of Public Health.
