A Conversation with Josh Margolis, Environmental Defense Fund

Join us for a chat with Josh Margolis, Managing Director, Environmental Markets, Climate Program at the Environmental Defense Fund.   

Josh will talk about his current work, career journey and what the current landscape looks like for those considering working in this space. 

Josh Margolis leads EDF’s efforts to develop and deploy CarbonSim, a carbon market simulation tool. Over his 35+ year career, he has provided policy analysis, market assessments, emissions brokerage services, environmental credit regulation evaluation/development, and simulation services to stakeholders that administer, advise on or are subject to emissions trading system (ETS) programs.

Josh has worked closely with Mexican, Chilean, Korean, Chinese, and Thai ETS stakeholders to adapt CarbonSim to suit their needs. He provided capacity building assistance to stakeholders involved in the launch of China’s original seven pilots and the forthcoming national ETS, worked with the International Energy Agency to deliver a simulation for China’s major power producers, and delivered a flare consents simulation for a North Sea oil producer.

Josh is a co-inventor of a patent that provides for the neutralization/offsetting of equities.

Josh will also be leading a CarbonSIM session in the afternoon.  Interested?  Register here to participate in the simulation game.
