Biography

Bill Stanley is the state director for The Nature Conservancy in Ohio, where he sets strategy and leads a team that protects lands and waters, helps to provide food and water sustainably, connects people and nature, builds healthy cities and works to address climate change.

He believes that it is not only possible to have thriving economies, rich cultural opportunities and preserved natural communities, but that these are mutually supportive. The path to success includes taking more time to listen, and collaborating with businesses, governments and communities. 

Previously at the Conservancy, Bill was the assistant state director and Agnes S. Andreae director of conservation for 10 years. Prior to that he directed the Global Climate Change Initiative, where he led forest carbon science research in support of projects that help to eliminate carbon pollution, and also designed approaches to reduce the threats posed by sea level rise, weather variability and climate change. He has been with TNC for 20 years.  Before joining the Conservancy he was as an environmental consultant dealing with toxic chemicals and emergency response, working primarily along the U.S. and Mexico border and with Native Americans.

He is a manager, strategist, forest scientist, climate change specialist and collaborator with strong success managing multi-disciplinary teams in order to solve local and global problems. He is most excited by the tangible results he and his teams have achieved over the last 20 years through conservation in forests, freshwater, and agricultural settings. Much of this work was made possible by the innovative, and sometimes pioneering, approaches that he and his team develop to simultaneously meet the needs of governments, businesses, communities and the environment.

Bill holds a BA in environmental science, with a minor in foreign affairs from The University of Virginia and a forest science (MFS) degree from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies.

The Nature Conservancy in Ohio Endorses Community Choice Aggregation Ballot Measure for Columbus

September 21, 2020

The Nature Conservancy is pleased to endorse the Community Choice Aggregation ballot measure, which will appear as Issue 1 on the local ballot for Columbus voters in the 2020 General Election. Passing this ballot initiative will allow the city of Columbus to develop an aggregation program and negotiate a contract with an energy supplier that will provide 100% renewable energy. It will also create the largest energy aggregation initiative focusing on renewable sources of energy by any city in the Midwest.

The following statement can be attributed in full, or in part, to Bill Stanley, Ohio State Director for The Nature Conservancy: “We were glad to see Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther announce earlier this year that Columbus would begin working toward goals of utilizing 100% renewable energy sources by 2022 and being carbon neutral by 2050. Passing Issue 1 in the November election is a pivotal step toward reaching these goals.

If approved by voters in November, this measure will allow the city to negotiate a contract with an electric energy supplier to provide the majority of Columbus residents with competitively-priced renewable energy. While we hope all Columbus residents will take advantage of this aggregation program, participation in community choice aggregation is voluntary, and residents can opt out at any time. The city has selected AEP Energy as the supplier for this aggregation plan.

Increasing the use of renewable sources to supply our community’s energy needs will help create more job opportunities, adding to the 114,000 Ohioans already employed by the clean energy sector as of 2019 (Clean Jobs Midwest). We are proud that Columbus is among the local leaders across the state taking advantage of renewable energy and energy efficiency, in part, because of their potential cost savings and job growth.

While investing in renewable energy is a powerful driver of sustainable economic growth, it is also an investment in our health. This ballot measure comes at a crucial time as we continue to experience the impacts of climate change, which has led to record-breaking changes in weather patterns—2019 concluded the hottest decade ever recorded. In addition to stressing natural habitats, higher temperatures harm air quality as emissions from cars, industry and other sources mix with heat and lead to ground-level ozone, which can pose serious risks – especially to those with respiratory conditions like asthma. Without question, access to clean air is an environmental determinant of health. By increasing renewable energy use, we can decrease emissions and improve air quality in Central Ohio. We thank Mayor Ginther and the members of Columbus City Council for their leadership on this important measure. We encourage Columbus voters to learn more about the aggregation program’s benefits and vote yes on Issue 1.”

Great American Outdoors Act Passes U.S. House

July 22, 2020

Today the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Great American Outdoors Act, which will fully fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) and restore national parks by helping address the backlog of maintenance needs.

The Great American Outdoors Act represents one of the biggest moves in a decade to protect America’s most important and beloved lands and waters. We thank Ohio Congressional Members Anthony Gonzalez, Joyce Beatty, Marcy Kaptur, and Steve Stivers for cosponsoring this legislation in the House. We also thank Senators Rob Portman and Sherrod Brown who supported this bill when it passed the Senate on June 17, 2020.

The Great American Outdoors Act provides full and permanent funding of $900 million each year for LWCF, which is supported by royalties from offshore oil and gas revenues—not taxpayer dollars. It has been used for more than 50 years to protect places in every state in the nation, including Ohio’s Wayne National Forest, Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge, East Fork State Park, the James Garfield National Historic Site, and roughly 1,500 other sites in Ohio.

It also invests $1.9 billion annually for the next five years in deferred maintenance for lands managed by the National Park Service, USDA Forest Service, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management and Bureau of Indian Education. With more than 2.2 million visits per year, Cuyahoga Valley National Park is one of the country’s busiest national parks and an important natural asset for which to ensure funding.

The Great American Outdoors Act comes at a crucial time. Investments in conservation are powerful drivers of economic growth that multiply local, state and national economies. According to a recent study conducted by researchers at the Ohio State University, in an average year there are 171 million outdoor recreation trips in Ohio. These trips infuse $5.9 billion in spending into the state’s economy every year. All told, approximately 132,000 Ohioans are employed in the outdoor recreation sector, which contributes $8.1 billion to our economy. 

Parks across our state have seen a huge increase in visitation as people opt for outdoor activity, where it is easier to maintain social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic. Now more than ever it is imperative that we provide funding for our parks and other outdoor spaces. We are glad to see the bipartisan cooperation in Congress that led to the passage of the Great America Outdoors Act, the biggest win for conservation of America’s parks in a generation. We look forward to seeing President Trump sign this landmark legislation.
