BeZero Carbon hires James Turck as Chief Technology Officer

We are thrilled to announce the appointment of James Turck as our Chief Technology Officer. In his role, he will be responsible for driving forward the company’s investment and innovation in technology to deliver market-leading ratings, risk and analytics tools for the Voluntary Carbon Market.

He joins BeZero from London Stock Exchange Group, where he served as interim Chief Technology Officer and Group Head of Platform for data and analytics. Mr Turck brings over two decades of experience, having previously worked for leading financial institutions Refinitiv, Credit Suisse, JP Morgan Chase, and investment banking group BNP Paribas.

BeZero Carbon is cementing itself as a global leader in climate tech, putting London firmly on the map as the centre of the rapidly-growing market. We have curated a team of world-leading experts in climate and data science, finance and policy, with a fifth of staff holding PhDs, to deliver data products that build environmental markets.

With an increasing number of companies purchasing carbon credits through the Voluntary Carbon Market to reach their Net Zero targets, ratings agencies like BeZero Carbon are vital to driving quality and transparency in the market. Through its BeZero Carbon Rating, the company provides an independent assessment of the likelihood that a carbon credit will avoid or remove the tonne of carbon that it claims to.

Tommy Ricketts, CEO and Co-founder at BeZero Carbon said:

“At BeZero Carbon, we are constantly investing in our technology to build market-leading ratings, risk and analytics tools that help to scale the Voluntary Carbon Market effectively. James’ invaluable experience will add to our brilliant team to accelerate this work.”

James Turck, Chief Technology Officer at BeZero Carbon said:

“The Voluntary Carbon Market is expanding at great pace. I am pleased to be joining BeZero Carbon to lead on the development of technology that will provide the information infrastructure essential to achieving Net Zero. I’m looking forward to working with BeZero Carbon’s excellent team to drive forward the company’s next stage of growth.”
