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.
