Jannick joined UNEP-CCC’s Section for Institutional Development in June 2023. His work focuses on ensuring the sustainable use of international carbon markets. As part of the Integrated Assessment for Article 6 project (IAA6), Jannick supports the implementation of holistic approaches to the cooperative mechanisms under the Paris Agreement. His work on developing interactive and accessible tools for tracking carbon market projects facilitates the transparency and accountability needed to safeguard environmental integrity and climate-just practices. He also contributes to capacity building activities to support increased climate ambition and the implementation of national commitments (NDC Action).
Before joining the Centre, Jannick gained practical experience in both the private and public sector. Complementing several years as a data analyst, he developed expertise in the field of international climate policy. As part of an interdisciplinary MSc programme, Jannick consulted various institutions on their climate strategies. In his research, he focused on carbon pricing instruments and how to align them with broad criteria of social and environmental justice. For his thesis, he conducted an analysis of adverse distributional impacts of the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) introduced by the European Union (EU). Most recently, Jannick contributed to the policy development of the EU’s new Emissions Trading System at the European Commission in Brussels.
Jannick holds a Master of Science in Environmental Management and Policy from Lund University.
