Jeff Erikson has been appointed General Manager, The Americas at the Global CCS Institute.
He replaces former Interim General Manager Victor Der, who will continue with the Institute as Executive Advisor, The Americas.
Institute CEO Brad Page said: “Jeff joins the Institute at an exciting time for the global carbon capture and storage (CCS) industry, with the US and Canada firmly in the spotlight. Five of the next seven large-scale integrated projects, anticipated to become operational within the next 18 months, are in the Americas and demonstrate the region’s significant commitment to developing CCS at scale.”
“Jeff’s vast knowledge of sustainability issues across a broad range of industries, coupled with his expertise in the business implications of global climate change, will be a valuable asset to the Institute, its members and CCS stakeholders as we work together to accelerate the development and deployment of CCS technologies to help meet our global climate change challenge,” Page continued.
Before joining the Institute, Erikson was Director of Global Projects at the Carbon War Room, an international non-governmental organisation working on issues regarding market-based solutions to climate change.
Previously, Erikson served as Senior Vice President at SustainAbility, a global strategic advisory firm, where he led global business development and headed up the Washington, DC office. Erikson also spent 14 years at Mobil Oil and Exxon Corp., where he was responsible for projects and programmes in multiple engineering specialties and across a broad range of environmental, health and safety issues.
