A founding member of our Technical Carbon Team (TCT), Brendan has been instrumental in developing Stantec’s capabilities around carbon sequestration and crediting through nature-based solutions. He has an extensive background in ecology and biogeochemistry with expertise in water quality and calculating nutrient/carbon impacts and credits associated with tidal wetlands, streams, and other project types.
His research, originally funded through our Greenlight program, helped develop an in-depth understanding of the voluntary carbon market and its registry protocols, analyses, and credit calculations across a variety of different habitats and project activities. The resulting resources and the C-QUEST calculation tool that Brendan developed formed the foundation of Stantec’s carbon sequestration service. These efforts utilize nature-based solutions and sustainable practices to support our clients’ net zero targets.
Outside of Stantec, you might find Brendan playing guitar, mandolin, dulcimer, or ukulele and spending time with his family. He toured in Europe as a singer in college twice, and he almost majored in vocal performance instead of environmental science.
