Ecosphere+ is part of Mirova, the responsible investing arm of Natixis, the second largest asset management firm in France.

At Ecosphere+, Jessica is responsible for driving demand in emerging carbon markets, including aviation and the use of new technologies to unlock new markets. She has been at the intersection of environment and finance for over twelve 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.
