A senior emissions trader at Vattenfall’s Amsterdam office has resigned, a source told Carbon Pulse, leading the Swedish-owned utility to seek to fill the role.

Nicolas Girod will leave the company at the end of May before moving to New York to seek new opportunities, the source said.

Vattenfall has advertised the vacancy, the details of which can be seen here.

In the advert, the company said it has annual exposure of more than 80 million tonnes of emissions per year, adding that it has expanded into the Chinese carbon market where it has already concluded several deals.

“We are ready to look into other emerging emission trading schemes when opportunities present themselves,” it said.
