ClimateCare, the organisation dedicated to tackling climate change and improving lives, has strengthened its project offering, responding to increased demand for Nature Based Solutions from clients.
The appointment of a new director, Rachael Nutter, will further reinforce the firm’s expertise in this space. With 15 years’ experience of helping organisations in the transition to a sustainable, Net Zero carbon economy and with a deep insight into climate-related opportunities and risks, Nutter joins ClimateCare as Director of Nature Based Solutions.
Nutter has broad experience across markets, low carbon technologies and business models and an in-depth knowledge of Nature Based Solutions. Her most recent role focused on finding new models for investing in Nature Based projects to deliver high-integrity carbon credits.
In her new leadership role at the B Corp, Nutter will bolster the already active Nature Based Solutions team and will focus on developing projects in the UK and internationally to generate robust carbon reductions and removals for ClimateCare’s clients.
ClimateCare has witnessed an increasing demand for UK based carbon reduction projects alongside international projects and is keen to ensure it can continue to offer its expanding client base a robust project portfolio. Projects will continue to span avoided emissions, through avoided deforestation, through to restoration and reforestation, across forest, peatland and grassland. The firm will also continue to lead innovation and delivery in this space by offering advanced pathways, such as soil carbon and mangroves.
Rachael Nutter, Director of Nature Based Solutions said:
“I am delighted to join the highly experienced and passionate team at ClimateCare at this exciting stage in its development. Our clients, from companies to Governments, are increasingly looking to Nature Based Solutions as a valuable part of taking full responsibility for their climate impacts. My focus will be on the integrity of projects – they must be robust, not only in the carbon delivery, but also have positive impacts on wider biodiversity and the local environment and communities. This will help us to avoid the worst impacts of climate change and allow us to become a net remover of carbon.”
This new appointment, and expansion of the Nature Based Solutions proposition, is part of broader growth plans for ClimateCare. It comes at a pivotal time for turning Net Zero pledges into real action and following investment secured to accelerate growth earlier this year.
Commenting on recent developments, Vaughan Lindsay CEO at ClimateCare explains: “We are extremely pleased to welcome Rachael to the team. She comes at such an integral time, not only for us at ClimateCare, but also as the world steps up a gear in its fight to tackle climate change. This is one of a number of planned new appointments as we accelerate our growth, increase our project portfolios and escalate our clients’ impact globally.”
