I look forward to building upon its legacy of excellence. Together, we will embrace innovation, continue delivering cutting-edge solutions to our clients, and explore new opportunities for growth and impact.”

Nathan Tiller, co-founder of CarbonQuota stated, “John brings invaluable experience in climate tech, which will allow us to accelerate the identification and facilitation of actionable de-carbonisation insights for our clients through deep sector expertise and cutting-edge carbon science.”

“We searched for a CEO who shared our dedication to positive climate impact through collaboration,” added Dominic Harris, co-founder of CarbonQuota. “John stood out – his ambition to accelerate our growth and get real emissions reductions for clients make him perfectly suited to bring CarbonQuota up to the next level. His vision aligns powerfully with our mission.”
