Dan Thompson, an expert in the carbon and sustainability markets with over 15 years’ experience, has joined Climate Impact Partners as Director of Global Sourcing.
In his role, Dan will lead the Climate Impact Partners’ sourcing team through both rapid growth and changing market dynamics, securing high quality projects for portfolios to meet increasing client demand for voluntary carbon market solutions.
Dan’s recent experience includes building the European franchise of BGC Partners’ Environmental Brokerage Services business, where he worked with clients to reach their climate goals through specialist brokerage services in both compliance and voluntary carbon markets.

The company has a goal to reduce one billion tonnes of carbon emissions by 2030, working alongside its climate-leading clients and high impact project partners.
