Climate and energy policy expert joins Climate Impact Partners’ External Affairs team

Published 14th December 2022

Dr. Philip Mann, an energy and climate policy expert with over 30 years’ experience, has joined Climate Impact Partners as Senior Manager of Country Programs.

In his role, Philip will lead Climate Impact Partners’ work on Article 6 of the Paris Agreement – supporting countries to use carbon markets in order to finance emission reduction projects and achieve Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). He will have a specific focus on the government-to-government carbon credit trading aspects under Article 6.2 and how they can contribute to global climate change goals while supporting international development objectives. 

Philip brings a wealth of policy experience, joining from the climate and environment division of the UK Government’s Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) where he was a senior energy adviser. In his role, he led the development of energy, climate and low-carbon development policy and strategy. He also delivered widescale policy and program advice across the UK government on just-energy transitions and low-carbon green growth. 

“I am delighted to have joined a global company with a team of leading experts all striving for the same goal – to deliver climate action now and contribute to development objectives,” says Philip, Senior Manager of Country Programs. “It is fantastic to use my experience to help governments around the world understand how they can work together, unlocking the potential of carbon markets to ensure we meet emission reduction commitments, raise ambition, and deliver finance for the transformation of countries most impacted by climate change yet least responsible.” 

“Carbon markets have a key role to play in meeting ambitious climate goals by putting a price on carbon to incentivize change and providing critical finance to carbon reduction projects,” says Jonathan Shopley, Managing Director of External Affairs. “Using Philip’s expertise, governments can use carbon markets to take effective and immediate action on climate risks, cut carbon from our environment in the most impactful ways, and fund the global effort to reach net zero.”
