Climate Impact Partners expands Project Development team with nature-based solutions expert

Published 6 April 2022

Frank Carroll, forester and forest investment specialist, has joined Climate Impact Partners, a merger of ClimateCare and Natural Capital Partners, as Vice President of Project Development in North America.

Frank, who will lead the development of nature-based carbon projects throughout North America, has spent the last 25 years working in forest investment, development of forestry projects and monitoring and measuring forest carbon stocks. Most recently he was President of Long Range Renewables LLC, where he advised investors and funds on carbon and other land opportunities.

Frank will work alongside the Climate Impact Partners’ global project development team to originate projects that meet clients’ increasing interest in new carbon removal and improved forest management projects and projects which link carbon and biodiversity conservation and restoration.

“With the rapidly increasing demand for voluntary carbon market solutions, comes an increasing need for quality projects that deliver real impact,” says Rachael Nutter, Global Director of Project Development. “Frank’s deep knowledge and experience working with forests to conserve and store carbon will be invaluable as we further extend our project development work throughout North America.”

“There is still so much untapped potential for nature-based projects to make a real impact on our global climate goals, alongside the conservation and restoration of ecosystems, provision of clean water, and supporting health and livelihoods,” says Frank Carroll. “Joining this team of the most experienced professionals in the voluntary carbon market provides me with the opportunity to realize that potential and make real change possible,” he says.

Climate Impact Partners is already on track to secure $1.5 billion in funding to support new carbon reduction and removal projects from the private sector over the next five years. The company is a merger of Natural Capital Partners and ClimateCare which was arranged by Averna Capital and announced last year.
