His strong trading and brokerage experience together with his deep understanding of project-based carbon credit transactions will enhance our operational efficiency and ensure that we provide an increasingly comprehensive service to clients across the voluntary and compliance markets.”

One of the most experienced carbon market professionals in Europe, MacGiffin began his career in carbon finance at Man Financial, where he ran the Carbon desk. He has liaised with international standards, registries and governments to advocate and facilitate the role of the carbon markets. MacGiffin has previously held the position of Co-Chair of the CMIA Voluntary Markets Working Group, and has a proven history of communicating effectively with a wide range of stakeholders, from investment bankers to senior figures within non-governmental organisations.
