Jessica Verhagen - BusinessGreen Leaders Summit 2018

Jessica Verhagen

At Ecosphere+, Jessica is responsible for driving demand for climate solutions, such as offering retailers point of sale solutions to account for their carbon impact and working with airlines under CORSIA. She has been at the intersection of environment and finance for over a dozen years, working in the British Columbia government designing North America's first carbon tax and the Western Climate Initiative's cap and trade system. She then worked with the founding team to launch Evok Innovations, a private sector $100 million fund that invests in early stage clean technologies to reduce greenhouse gases, followed by rolling up her sleeves in one of the world's top 100 cleantech companies to raise capital and develop the go to market strategy.
