The Nature Conservancy (TNC) has shown that natural climate solutions (NCS)—sustainably managing, restoring and protecting forests and other lands—can provide up to a third of the solution to climate change by 2030. We have raised awareness of these solutions and identified the countries and types of actions that have the greatest carbon-abatement potential.
As public concern about climate change drives corporate and other net-zero commitments, interest in carbon markets is growing exponentially, and in particular how such markets can support the scaling of NCS. Around the world, we are responding directly to dozens of leading companies, all of whom are committed to reaching their net-zero commitments and require voluntary and compliance carbon market participation to achieve their commitments.
The Global Carbon Markets Director provides strategic leadership to deliver a well-coordinated and impactful approach across TNC to the carbon marketplace. The Director serves as a Conservancy Lead for establishing a “Center for Carbon Excellence”, coordinating and leveraging internal expertise in science, corporate engagement, finance, public policy, and on-the ground conservation to direct private capital towards NCS projects that deliver high-quality, credible offsets around the world. The Director is responsible for coordinating a One Conservancy approach to facilitating new carbon market opportunities to drive investments in climate action. The Director reports to the Director, Natural Climate Solutions and is a direct line report to the global climate change team.
