First Climate LLC, a provider of carbon asset management, investment and advisory services, has opened a new office in San Francisco. The new office will work in conjunction with the Washington, D.C., office to provide fully integrated carbon management solutions for the growing voluntary and pre-compliance U.S. carbon markets.
Managing Director Greg Chambers will oversee the San Francisco office and will prioritize the expansion of First Climate's capacity in the U.S. to effectively respond to growing demand from clients. He was formerly the director of sustainability at Sterling Planet, where he guided customers in their greenhouse gas management programs.
Previously, Chambers worked at Hewlett Packard and Quantum Corp., where he gained extensive experience pioneering corporate environmental programs.
‘Activity and interest in the U.S. market is intensifying as the implementation of carbon reduction legislation is now close at hand,’ says Chambers. ‘We are excited about the opportunity to build on First Climate's experience and leadership in international markets by continuing to provide comprehensive, high-quality solutions and products that enable our clients to respond effectively to both the risks and opportunities posed by climate change.’
