Christy Goldfuss is the vice president for energy and environment policy at the progressive policy think-tank, the Center for American Progress (CAP).

Prior to this, she was managing director of the White House Council on Environmental Quality under President Barack Obama. In that role, Goldfuss helped develop and implement the Obama administration's environmental and energy policies, including the Climate Action Plan, and was a key player in the implementation of President Obama's climate and ocean action plans.

She has taken part in conversations with NZ's Pew Charitable Trust about how to go about creating ocean sanctuaries and using other instruments of marine protection.
