LONDON, 14 June – IETA regrets to announce that Jeff Swartz, Managing Director, is leaving the organisation.
Jeff has been a part of the IETA team since 2011, spearheading our work on international climate policy, China and the Business Partnership for Market Readiness (B-PMR). He was instrumental in our work on how market mechanisms could be included in the Paris Agreement, which contributed to Article 6 of the final agreement.
He will be leaving at the end of August to take up a post with South Pole Group as Director for Climate Policy and Carbon Markets.
“Jeff has made a tremendous contribution to IETA, notably through his work in the run up to the Paris climate talks and via the B-PMR, which has opened the door to IETA in many new countries,” says Dirk Forrister, IETA’s President and CEO. “We wish Jeff all the best for his next move, and look forward to continuing to work with him as an IETA member.”
IETA is recruiting now for his successor. The job posting is available on our website and the deadline for applications is 28 June.
