I earned a B.Sc.F. from the Faculty of Forestry, University of Toronto, in 1979 and a Ph.D. in Forest Economics from the same institute in 1986. Jeremy has been in the carbon space since 1999, and he has been involved in the development of three forest carbon protocols, developed project description documents for afforestation projects, been a verifier, and undertaken reviews and analyses of different forest carbon protocols and risks of reversal. For the last several years, Jeremy has been a core team member for the Sustainable Biomass Program’s Regional Risk Assessments from British Columbia, New Brunswick, and most recently, Nova Scotia. Jeremy also led the preparation of a Catchment Area Analysis for two pellet mills in Burns Lake and Houston, B.C. Additional experience includes participating as a member of Dr. William Lahey’s team that reviewed forest practices in Nova Scotia.
