Allister Furey


Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer

Allister Furey has an MBA from London Business School, and a PhD in computational neuroscience and robotics from University of Sussex, where he focused on optimizing control of wind energy systems. He has worked as a consultant for Bain & Company, as CTO of a leading UK wind energy technology company, and venture partner at Entrepreneur First. Allister and his co-founder Sam Gill observed that carbon markets needed a revolution in data quality to reliably deliver climate benefits, and to achieve the necessary scale to have a meaningful impact. Together they founded Sylvera in 2020 to bring transparency and, ultimately, trust to carbon markets.

    Delivering on Article 6: Building an integrated emissions trading ecosystem

    Energy Transition/Climate & Sustainability
    What does emissions trading look like now? What interaction—if any—is there between compliance systems and the voluntary market? How will the markets deliver on the promises laid out in Article 6? What, if anything, can we expect from the carbon markets for COP28? What role will carbon project investment play in delivering on needed changes for the delivery of net zero? Is net zero still achievable under current pledges? What needs to accelerate and is there a role for carbon markets in delivering it?
