Manager of Brinkman Climate
Joseph Pallant has been active in the carbon market since 2004, providing project development expertise and strategic direction across private, public and NGO endeavour. He has developed first-of projects in forestry, fuel switching and transportation, co-founded the Carbon Cocktails society, and founded CPS Carbon Project Solutions Inc., a pioneering offset development firm. Pallant’s work, insight and advocacy continues to shape the growth of Canada’s low-carbon economy.
Pallant holds an MBA degree from INSEEC, Paris, France, a post graduate diploma in Latin American Management from the McRae Institute of International Management (Capilano College) and a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and Environmental Studies from the University of Victoria. He is an avid networker and has been a featured speaker in academic and business environments. His contributions as a member of International Emissions Trading Association, and attendee at the Montreal, Copenhagen and Paris UN Climate conferences add both context and vision to his work for climate solutions.
Pallant loves to explore BC’s old-growth forests, cycle the Interior’s dry hills and paddle beautiful coastal inlets with his wife. The experience of living amidst the people, cultures and ideas of this fine province fosters insight and enthusiasm for his work. He presently runs Brinkman Climate, developing emissions reductions projects and helping smart climate policy succeed.
