Brad Schallert is WWF’s director of carbon market governance and aviation. In this role, Brad is WWF’s lead on compliance and voluntary carbon markets and leads the organization’s efforts to create sound climate policy for the aviation sector, which is the fastest-growing source of greenhouse gas emissions driving global climate change.
Brad leads WWF’s efforts to ensure that carbon markets operate as an effective tool to address the climate crisis. This includes analyzing and advising companies on carbon credit purchases and communications as well as advocating for the integrity of carbon market accounting for rules that would underpin the international carbon market as envisioned by Article 6 of the Paris Agreement.
Brad holds an MPA in Environmental Science and Policy from Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs, as well as a BA in International and Environmental Studies from the University of Oregon. Prior to joining WWF, he worked at The Climate Group in New York where he coordinated engagement to catalyze greenhouse gas emissions reductions within Fortune 500 companies and regional governments.
