A former ICIS-Tschach carbon market analyst has joined Shell in China, where he will be involved in developing offset projects and CO2 trading.
Jian Wei Lim, who resigned from his position as ICIS-Tschach director of Chinese carbon markets last month, has joined Shell’s China origination team, sources told Carbon Pulse.
Lim will be involved in the development and marketing of offset projects that can deliver Chinese Certified Emissions Reductions (CCERs) to China’s seven pilot carbon markets and the national ETS, which will begin next year, as well as trading of emissions allowances, Carbon Pulse understands.
Shell is actively trading in several of the pilot markets, and last June advertised for a senior carbon trader and a senior originator to be based in Beijing, as the company is gearing up to participate in what will eventually become the world’s biggest emissions market.
