  1. Please describe your background in environment policy, how you gained your experiences in these fields, and what you do now at the International Emissions Trading Association (‘IETA’).

As the question makes clear, my experience is in environmental policy, not trade. As European Policy Director at the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA), I advocate for market solutions to climate change. In this position, I provide analysis and advice on European Climate Policy, with a particular emphasis on the EU’s Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) and related policies. Prior to IETA, I worked as an analyst in the energy industry on international climate policy issues. I began my career working on environmental policy in the Parliament of the United Kingdom (UK).
