Sarene in the News


Sarene Marshall is a Senior Advisor for The Nature Conservancy, where she is leading an initiative to reduce the Conservancy’s environmental and carbon footprint by improving waste management, recycling, energy use and more. Sarene is also working closely with the Conservancy’s Latin America region, helping to develop new initiatives on Food Security, Water Security and Smart Infrastructure as well as reviewing and recommending adjustments to the region’s management structure.

Sarene has led several major programs in her time at the Conservancy, including as Managing Director for the Conservancy’s global Climate Change Team, and previously as Associate Director of the Conservancy’s program on Forests and Climate. Sarene joined the Conservancy in 2002, and was Director of Business Planning and Analysis from 2004-2007, responsible for strategic planning and globalization projects on behalf of the CEO and key leaders.

In her various roles, Sarene gained a bird’s eye view of the Conservancy’s work on climate change: from the science of measuring carbon stored in the forests of Brazil and Indonesia; to the halls of Congress and the United Nations; and down to the soil, freshwater and oceans where the Conservancy works – and which are experiencing rapid change with global warming. Sarene, a mother of two, enjoys gardening and gourmet cooking, and she frequently blogs about her career in nature conservation and climate change from her family’s perspective.
