Leon Heckmann works as an Analyst at adelphi in the areas of emission trading systems (ETS) and climate policy. He is also part of the International Carbon Action Partnership (ICAP) team. ICAP is a global forum for exchanging experiences and knowledge between governments on the implementation of ETS. For Leon, the global dimension of climate policy is important: probably more than any other challenge, tackling climate change requires international cooperation. Transboundary emission trading systems can be an effective instrument for this.
“Climate policy and sustainability is becoming more and more a cross-cutting issue that affects all policies and will also crucially shape international relations of the 21st century. At adelphi, I am able to implement specific projects with decision makers from politics and business, thus contributing to tackling this global challenge.”
