Codi Norred, Board Member

Codi has worked on issues of environmental justice, climate change, and sustainability, for nearly a decade.

Serving as the Executive Director of Georgia Interfaith Power and Light (GIPL) since 2020, Codi previously worked at every level of the organization. He has managed GIPL’s Green Teams, practical climate solutions programs, outlined policy priorities, and developed GIPL’s educational programs. Codi continues to bolster these initiatives by supporting the GIPL team as they mobilize congregations for faithful climate action across Georgia and continue to advance just, equitable, and clean energy policy at the local, state, and federal levels.

Codi additionally serves on the Board of Directors for National Interfaith Power and Light, and as the Southeast Representative on National Interfaith Power and Light’s Network Steering Committee. He is a founding member of the Southeast Faith Leader’s Network, serves on the Executive Committee of the Just Energy Circle, the Legislative Committee and the Coal Ash Committee of the Georgia Water Coalition, and is an active member of several committees within the Georgia Clean Energy Coalition, the Southeast Climate and Energy Network, and the US Climate Action Network. In January 2023, Codi was appointed to the Clean Energy Advisory Board for the City of Atlanta and in December 2023 named one of Emory University’s 40 under 40. As a speaker within the Interfaith Speaker’s Network of Georgia, Codi regularly helps to foster ecumenical dialogue and understanding across the state.

Codi has also worked in the field of international peacebuilding and conflict transformation. He has worked with communities in Israel, Palestine, and Belfast, Northern Ireland, examining the degree to which environmental degradation relates to international conflict.

Codi holds a Master of Divinity (M.Div.) from Candler School of Theology at Emory University with concentrations in Justice, Peacebuilding, and Conflict Transformation (JPCT), Theology and Ethics, and a Graduate Certificate in Human Rights. He also holds a BA in Religion from Samford University. When he’s not leading GIPL initiatives, Codi plays the drums and helps to lead worship at Park Avenue Baptist Church in Atlanta.
