Kate Krebs

Director of Industry Affairs

Kate leads the Closed Loop Beverage Fund’s efforts to leverage infrastructure investments across the country to drive forward a circular system for material recovery.

Prior to joining Closed Loop Partners, Kate worked on environmental issues with the American Beverage Association whose members include Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, Keurig Dr.Pepper and Red Bull. She served as Director of Sustainable Resources with The Climate Group, and as Executive Director of The National Recycling Coalition. She began her environmental work in Northern California leading recycling and environmental advocacy efforts with local community-based organizations.

Kate is a longtime organic gardener, supplying friends and neighbors with produce from her well tended garden beds and fruit trees. In her travels around the world, she always visits gardens and orchards to learn how others create sustainable beauty from plants and trees.

Waste is a design flaw, the ability to create circularity of all materials eliminates waste and builds a sustainable world.
