Tim has worked over 15 years at the nexus of climate, energy, policy and corporate sustainability. As Director of US Corporate Climate Engagement at WWF, he partners with businesses to drive transformative climate solutions and transition to a net zero future through WWF’s Climate & Business Hub, the Science-Based Targets initiative, Climate Savers, We Are Still In and the Renewable Thermal Collaborative. Tim has a particular interest in helping companies navigate the ever-evolving world of climate-related commitments and claims, collaborate with each other to find new implementation solutions, and make sense of the voluntary carbon credit and renewable energy markets.
Tim was previously Director of Corporate Engagement & Sustainability at Edison Energy, an energy advisory firm, where he advised clients on their sustainability and renewable energy strategies, provided thought leadership and worked closely with the company’s non-profit partners.
Prior to Edison Energy, Tim worked for 10+ years at C2ES, the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (formerly the Pew Center on Global Climate Change), where he directed the Center's Business Environmental Leadership Council of 35+ Fortune 500 corporations. Tim was part of the Center’s world-renowned thought leadership team, and specialized in carbon markets and carbon pricing. He led the business council during the Pew Center’s role as a founding member of the US Climate Action Partnership, and in 2012 he co-developed the Climate Leadership Awards and conference, which over 9 years has grown to one of the leading climate conferences in the US.
Tim has attended the last 11 UNFCCC climate COPs and has spoken on corporate sustainability and climate across North & South America, Europe, Africa and Australia. He also worked briefly for the USEPA, where in 2006 he launched the GreenChill voluntary corporate climate partnership program that is still going strong today.
