Panelists

I have always worked in the energy sector and have had a long-term interest in environmental issues. My earliest experience in this area was through an article in our school science magazine on the destruction of the ozone layer (when the link with CFCs had only just been established).

After graduating as a chemical engineer, I started my working life as a refinery engineer in Australia during another period of very high oil prices when energy efficiency was paramount. I then spent a period in the Netherlands, before returning to Australia to become involved with another side of the oil industry, energy economics and supply. This led to a move to London as an oil trader for Shell followed by a time managing the global trading and chartering of Shell’s crude oil tanker fleet. In 2001 I took up my current role and haven’t looked back since.

I combine my work as Chief Climate Change Adviser for Shell, with my responsibilities as a Board Member (and former Chair) for the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA) and Washington based think-tank C2ES. I also work closely with the World Business Council for Sustainable Development and have been a lead contributor to many of its energy and climate change publications.

In 2014 this blog grew into an e-book, which was published just prior to the UN Climate Summit in New York. With carbon pricing policy now rising up the agenda of many governments, a second book is now out, focussing specifically on that subject.

The carbon pricing book is available exclusively on Amazon, either for Kindle or iPads, iPhones and other devices with the Kindle App. It is also available in hard copy, given the number of requests I had for such treatment over the last twelve months. For those that haven’t caught up with my first attempt mentioned above, it is now also available in hardcopy.

Richard became Joint Senior Partner of King Sturge in 2005 and led the company into the merger with JLL in 2011.  He has subsequently been Chairman of the UK business, and in 2012 a Member of the EMEA Management Board with responsibility for CEE, the Middle East and Africa together with the industrial sector and sustainability.  He took up his current role in January 2017.
