Richard Fuller is an Australian-born, U.S.-based engineer, entrepreneur and environmentalist best known for his work in global pollution remediation. In June 2018, he was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia in recognition of his service to conservation and the environment.
He is founder and president of the nonprofit Pure Earth, dedicated to solving pollution problems in low and middle-income countries, where human health is at risk. He is also founder of the Global Alliance on Health and Pollution.
Fuller has noted that "over the last couple of decades, climate change has taken over as the key environmental issue. ... and pollution has simply dropped off the map. This is an extraordinary result and one we really need to turn around."
