Zeina El-Azzi

Chief Development Officer

My Contribution to the Mission:
I am responsible for operations related to our renewable gas projects, as well as development of our plastics renewal facilities in North America. It falls in line with my desire to wake up in the morning and work on projects and issues that impact our environment in a positive way.

A Retrospective:
I have spent nearly 20 years in the power and energy fields, with a focus on renewable energy. Half of that time has been spent in the United States and the other half working abroad.

Diplomas On My Wall:
I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics and Bachelor of Arts degree in Middle Eastern Studies from University of Texas, Austin. I also have a Master of Arts degree in Energy and Mineral Resources from University of Texas, Austin.

Where You Could Have Seen Me:
I am active in the speaking space, having sat on panels and participated in webinars for entities like the American Wind Energy Association and Solar Energy Industries Association, to name a few. I was also the chair of the University of Texas at Austin’s Renewable Energy Law conference.

Where Else You Might Find Me:
When I’m not thinking of ways to positively impact our environment, I am on my Peloton bike, scuba diving, sailing, cooking, taking in an opera, or traveling the world.

Words I Live By:
“Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.”
-Khalil Gibran
