The Climate Markets and Investment Association (CMIA) will next week appoint outgoing Gold Standard chief Adrian Rimmer as its new president.

Rimmer will replace Anthony Hobley, CEO of the Carbon Tracker Institute, to head the London-based sustainable finance and services trade group have for a two-year term, he told Carbon Pulse on the sidelines of the Argus European Emissions Markets conference in Amsterdam.

Rimmer is stepping down from carbon project certifier Gold Standard on April 1 to become CEO of European Environmental Markets plc, which is developing a spot carbon trading exchange for EUAs and CERs.

He led Gold Standard for almost five years and before that was a director of environmental finance at bank RBS/ABN Amro.
