Carbon Offset Advisory Council

To help Net Zero address all carbon offset questions in a nuanced and sensible fashion, we rely on an advisory council. 

The council is composed of seasoned leaders with a diverse range of expertise on renewable energy, forestry issues, and the voluntary carbon offset market. 

Council members participate on their own behalf, and not as representatives of their own organizations. 

The council members are: 

  • Kim Fiske, Chair of the Board of Directors ⁠— OneEnergy Inc.
  • Kelley Hamrick, Policy Advisor ⁠— The Nature Conservancy
  • Matthew Perl, Network Development ⁠— World Wildlife Fund
  • Barrett Stambler, Partner ⁠— Creative Renewable Solutions
