Brad Schallert is WWF's deputy director of international climate cooperation. In this role, Brad leads the organization's efforts to create sound climate policy for the aviation sector, which is the fastest-growing source of the greenhouse gas emissions driving global climate change and is WWF's lead on international carbon markets.
WWF is a member of the International Coalition for Sustainable Aviation, an observer to the UN’s civil aviation body, the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO). In this role, Brad leads WWF’s work to advise on emissions offset criteria for the ICAO Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA) and advocates for additional policies that would help the aviation sector do its part to cut its emissions as required by science and the Paris Agreement.
Brad also supports WWF climate advocacy in international settings such as the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) primarily by advocating 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.
